Dr. Walia said that the Aam Aadmi Party had promised that after coming to power, 500 new schools would be created. But in a three-year tenure, a school was not even bought by buying new land, while he inaugurated 10 schools whose foundation was laid under the Congress rule.
Congress has continued to attack the Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi saying that in the last three years, there has been an unprecedented propaganda in the name of education, but there is no change in education on the ground. Former Congress minister of Delhi, Dr Kiran Walia said that the Aam Aadmi Party had made big claims about the education system, but they have not been fulfilled in three years.
He said that the claim of Kejriwal’s government to bring a revolution in the field of education ends there only when the government data shows that while there were 17.75 lakh students in government schools in Delhi in 2013-14, they are less in 2015-16. By 16.77 lakhs, the number of students in private schools increased by 1.42 lakh in the last two years. Similarly, results of 10th board examinations have also been reduced from 98.40 percent to 91 percent.
