English medium: Kanna opposes, Vishnu supports

YSR Congress party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy’s decision to make English as a medium of instruction in all the government schools was strongly resisted by the Bharatiya Janata Party in the state.

BJP Andhra unit president Kanna Lakshminarayana even smeared a communal colour to Jagan’s decision saying it was a conspiracy as part of encouraging Christianity in schools.

He said the decision would completely destroy the Telugu language and culture in the state.

Surprisingly, Kanna’s own colleague and former MLA P Vishnu Kumar Raju came in support of Jagan and opposed his party president’s view on English medium.

He said it was an excellent decision from the Jagan government that would go a long way in improving the educational standards of the students.

Vishnu, however, suggested that Telugu should not be neglected in the English medium schools. He said he did not know why Kanna was opposing such an excellent decision.

Not just Vishnu, even the BJP MLC Somu Veerraju also recently supported Jagan’s decision to introduce English medium in the government schools and said it would improve the strength in the schools.
