Taking to Twitter, Union home minister Amit Shah said that the infrastructure of the state-run government schools in Delhi are in poor condition and lashed out at CM Arvind Kejriwal for his negligence over the same
New Delhi: Union home minister Amit Shah on Tuesday (January 28) slammed Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal over poor infrastructure in state-run schools of the national capital.
"Arvind Kejriwal Ji, you had called me to visit the schools run by the Delhi government. Yesterday, eight MPs of Delhi had toured different schools and showed the conditions. The ground situation has exposed the claims of 'revolution in education'. Now, you have to answer the public of Delhi," the Union minister said in a tweet.
अरविंद केजरीवाल जी आपने मुझे दिल्ली सरकार द्वारा संचालित स्कूल देखने के लिए बुलाया था। कल दिल्ली भाजपा के आठों सांसद अलग-अलग स्कूल में गए और देखिए इनका क्या हाल है...— Amit Shah (@AmitShah) January 28, 2020
इनकी बदहाली ने आपकी ‘शिक्षा की क्रांति’ के दावों की पोल खोल दी।
अब आपको दिल्ली की जनता को जवाब देना होगा... pic.twitter.com/gjzgaix2rA
Shah also posted a four-minute-long video of the schools in which the eight Delhi BJP MPs, including Rajya Sabha MP Vijay Goel, have toured the schools outlining poor infrastructure and lack of facilities at these facilities.
The eight Delhi BJP parliamentarians who visited these schools were Dr Harsh Vardhan, Vijay Goel, Parvesh Sahib Singh, Meenakshi Lekhi, Gautam Gambhir, Hansraj Hans, Manoj Tiwari and Ramesh Bidhuri.
On January 27, BJP leader Parvesh Sahib Singh Verma, while touring the school, strongly refuted AAP's claim that Delhi state-run schools have become world-class. He visited a school in the Matiala area of the national capital.
Verma visited the school with a couple of journalists and pointed towards the cracked building and a ceiling of the classrooms.
The BJP MP from West Delhi constituency also presented a letter sent by PWD to the school, warning that the school building was dangerous and could collapse anytime.
The voting for Delhi Assembly elections will take place on February 8. The counting of votes will take place on February 11.
