Ajay Maken slams Delhi govt's 'achievements' in education as 'myth'
NEW DELHI: Congress on Thursday challenged Aam Aadmi Party government's claims of achievements in education sector, saying it was a "myth" as not only children were leaving Delhi government schools but also less number of them were passing out.
Rubbishing Kejriwal government's claims, Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken
released a report, 'Reality of Delhi government education: An expose', in a press conference here.
"In past two years, about 98,000 children left Delhi government schools while private ones gained 1.42 lakh more," he said, citing the report compiled by accessing data from documents and websites of CBSE and Delhi government.
The Class XII results under the AAP government have been the "worst" in recent times, he alleged. In the last year of Congress regime in Delhi, 2013-14, the total number of students in Delhi government schools who passed Class XII was 1.47 lakh. This number declined to 1.17 lakh (2016) and further 1.09 lakh in 2017 under the AAP government, Maken claimed in his report.
