Hyderabad: Expressing displeasure at the AP and Telangana governments’ failure to implement the Right to Education (RTE) Act of 2007, the Hyderabad High Court on Tuesday directed them to file affidavits explaining steps taken by them towards implementation of the Act.

A division bench comprising Acting Chief Justice Ramesh Ranganathan and Justice K. Vijaya Lakshmi dealt with a PIL taken on the basis of a letter written by Y. Thippa Reddy, a resident of Wanaparthy, to the Chief Justice seeking the court’s intervention to ensure implementation of RTE Act in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. Mr Reddy urged the court to safeguard the educational rights of children. The RTE ACT guarantees free and compulsory education for children up to the age of 14 years.

 

The bench questioned the authorities of the Telugu states as to why the Act was not being implemented. It observed that there were irregularities in the provision of free education.

Mr Yogesh, the counsel appearing for the petitioner, submitted that as per the Act, 25 per cent of the seats have to be reserved for the poor, which is not being done. The case was adjourned for three weeks.
