Actor Dr Rajasekhar tweeted, "Chief Minister, Ys Jagan Garu's decision to introduce English medium in government schools is absolutely right! In today's world, it is key to speak English to get jobs and communicate. There are so many people struggling in their higher studies and to get jobs because of their inability to speak the language. This will put an end to that. I completely support this. Along with this I strongly feel that our mother tongue Telugu should also be made a compulsory subject! Education must be equal to all, this is taking us one step closer!"

AP Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy defends Govt's move to convert all Govt schools into English medium. Pragmatic move. Knowledge of English essential to progress. Those who criticise move should come out & tell how many of their Children are studying in local medium schools.

For once, I agree with YS Jagan. Making English medium compulsory for all gov schools is a good step, and would bear good fruits if implemented effectively. Everyone opposing it sent their children to English medium schools, and are plain hypocrites. #YSJaganForGovtEnglishSchools

Jagan is someone who is very adamant in taking decisions when it comes to welfare of the ppl. He is not a person who would budge to opposition cheap tactics. No matter how loud noise CBN and his partner makes regarding English medium implementation he is not going to give a damn!
