Oommen Chandy.JPGTHIRUVANANTHAPURAM: “If the list by the Higher Secondary Director has to be followed as such, why should there be a democratic government,” asked Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, making evident the government’s displeasure over the High Court decision to strike down additional Plus One batches and higher secondary schools.

In an apparent criticism directed at the High Court,  Chandy also expressed his  displeasure in HC serving notice on the Cabinet sub-committee. “I don’t agree with serving notice on the Cabinet sub-committee. In that case, notice should be issued to me. The committee operated well within its administrative jurisdiction,” Chandy said.

“We’ll try to convince the court additional schools and batches were sanctioned based on the need,” he said. The government did not overlook the report by the HSE Director but only brought in some additions, Chandy said. He said the government will not criticise the court, but will try to substantiate its appeal by pointing out the need for sanctioning additional batches and schools.
