Sisodia challenges Pargat Singh to release list of reformed government schools in Punjab

Sisodia challenges Pargat Singh to release list of reformed government schools in Punjab

Chandigarh, Nov 28 (UNI) Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Sunday released a list of Delhi’s 250 government schools upto class 12, as part of the challenge posed to Punjab Education Minister Pargat Singh; to compare the condition and entire education system of the Punjab and Delhi government schools; further seeking a list of such schools from the Punjab government.

Addressing the media on Sunday, Sisodia, who also holds education department, released the list of 250 government schools of Delhi which have improved in the field of education reforms, infrastructure, training and results.

He said that it was a matter of great happiness that now education was becoming an issue in the politics of the country, especially in electoral politics. "In the last 5 years, the work that has been done in the government schools in the field of education in Delhi; it has forced other parties to talk about it," he said.

He said that recently Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had made several announcements for teachers in Punjab and in regard to this; the Congress claimed that they had done a lot of work in the field of education and that no work was done in Delhi.

To this, we (AAP) challenged them (Congress) for an open debate on the work being done in Punjab in the last five years and in Delhi, respectively. However, the Punjab’s Education Minister said that he would like to review 250 schools and not 10-12 schools. For this, we have released a list of 250 government schools of Delhi, said Sisodia.
"A lot of work has been done in all the schools of Delhi. Work has been done on education reform; on Building and Infrastructure, on Training of the teachers in government schools and on the results there," he added.
