In a tweet, BJP spokesperson, Supreme Court lawyer Ashwini Upadhyay questioned the Delhi government on the poor results by students in the state in gaining admission for further studies
In what can be termed as a pertinent question tied to the Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal’s statement of being proud of Delhi government school students outperforming their private school peers, BJP spokesperson Ashwini Upadhyay asked why the results of students in examinations for further studies is poor.
Upadhyay, in his tweet stated, if the government schools in Delhi have improved, then why are results of the students poor, and why do they fail to gain admission in Delhi University?
He took to Twitter to question how many students in the last five years of the Delhi government schools had appeared for JEE, NEET, NDA, CLAT and SSC.
यदि दिल्ली के सरकारी स्कूलों में सुधार हुआ है तो छात्रों का रिजल्ट खराब क्यों है और उनका दिल्ली यूनिवर्सिटी में एडमिशन क्यों नहीं होता है?— Ashwini Upadhyay (@AshwiniBJP) January 12, 2020
पिछले 5 साल में दिल्ली के सरकारी स्कूलों के कितने छात्रों ने JEE NEET NDA CAT CLAT और SSC परीक्षा पास किया है?@ArvindKejriwal @blsanthosh pic.twitter.com/PCUigIizgh
Netizens have also questioned Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on the same.
Some opined that it is not always about the development and the improvement in results but is about the quality of education too. While others stated that education should translate into the ability to earn an income, and support livelihood.
Ahead of the Delhi elections, the Arvind Kejriwal government has come under severe criticism.
BJP president Amit Shah had earlier slammed Arvind Kejriwal, stating, "The AAP government in Delhi has caused the most harm to the poor of Delhi. Kejriwal ji just for his political interests is not allowing Ayushman Bharat scheme to be implemented. People have now seen through you Kejriwal ji, AAP was wiped out in MCD and Lok Sabha polls.".
The Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in Delhi is hopeful of gaining a consecutive second term banking on freebies it announced last year including free ride for women in DTC and cluster buses, free electricity for consumption up to 200 units, among a slew of other measures.
