      EDUCATION JUST AHEAD :- AAM AADMI chief Arvindji always said, he wants to build a regiment from AAM AADMI irrespective of rich and poor which will build hundreds of flyovers and railways according to the need in the future. For that he is ready to spend taxpayers money not at all thriftily. As AAP believes in SWARAJ, to facilitate that ideology AAP is taking EDUCATION sector to the doorsteps of the people of Delhi.................. - Setup helpline for admission in schools.
