Delhi govt challenges BJP, Cong govts to compete in education sector
NEW DELHI: Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Wednesday threw open a challenge to all the governments in the country to come ahead and compete with the education revolution in Delhi. He also challenged the BJP ruled MCDs to have a comparison between the schools of Delhi Government and those run by the MCDs. He said this will ultimately benefit the students of Delhi providing them with good schools.
"I challenge the MCDs and also governments of other states ruled by other political parties to compete with the work done in education sector by our government in Delhi. Let's start today and then compare after an year or two," said the Education Minister of Delhi.
He added, "I am very happy that 'education' is being discussed by the politicians who keep discussing issues like Shamshan and Kabristaan. We said when we entered politics that we are here to change politics, and look how they have been forced to talk over education and schools".
"The only agenda these two political parties (Congress & BJP) had on education was to decide how many crores of Rs in bribe to be taken for giving recognition to private schools and colleges, or to lobby for land to private schools, or how to pocket heavy commissions in admissions, or how to pocket funds in schemes like Mid-Day meals etc," Sisodia said.
Be it a Congress ruled state or a BJP ruled state, Govt schools are being shut down, and private schools are increasing day by day, their fee is increasing day by day. All over the country, parents are frustrated over arbitrary fee hikes in private schools. There is no transparency in EWS admissions in private schools in any of the states," he said.
