Polling dates for the 2020 assembly elections in the country’s capital Delhi are yet to be announced, but political attacks have intensified in the BJP, Congress and Aam Aadmi Party. The Bharatiya Janata Party has given a new slogan against AAP, ‘5 years Delhi’s Atal, no longer want Kejriwal’. It has been launched by BJP Delhi Pamukh Manoj Tiwari. In fact, in the past, the Aam Aadmi Party had offended for the upcoming assembly elections – good 5 years, Lage Raho Kejriwal.
PPRC’s instructions and BJP’s national vice-president, Dr. Vinay Sahasrabuddhe, surrounded AAP Sarkar and said that information related to education was sought by applying more than 11 hundred RTIs. He said that since 2015, there has been a decrease in the passing percentage of students of class X in government schools. 45 percent of the students do not reach the tenth standard. AAP workers have been appointed in the education department and schools, which increased expenses. The vacant posts of teachers are not being filled.
Delhi BJP in-charge Shyam Jaju said that no steps were being taken to improve the quality of education. State BJP president Manoj Tiwari said that the AAP government believes in propaganda, not development. BJP leaders will visit schools to open up the claims of reforms in education. Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia will also be called on the spot.
MP Pravesh Verma said that despite the Delhi government having 82 plots available, not a single school-college has been built. New Delhi MP Meenakshi Lekhi said that students are not being given admission in class X and XII to improve exam results. East Delhi MP Gautam Gambhir said that sports and sportspersons were being ignored. The director of the institution, Dr. Sumit Bhasin, Virender Sachdeva were also present on the occasion.
