The controversy has already started brewing with the government not making public the agenda for the session. Leader of the Opposition and BJP MLA Vijender Gupta has alleged that this was a strategy of the AAP Government to “deprive” the opposition to raise issues. “This is an attack on democratic functioning of the government. It deprives the opposition of the opportunity to raise its voice on issues that are in interest of the public,” he was quoted as saying by Indian Express.
Earlier this month, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal asked Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia to work on the possibility of giving 80 percent reservation to students of the national capital in the Delhi government-aided colleges, a PTI report said. The CM also asked Sisodia to see whether 80-85 percent of guest teachers could be also be inducted Delhi.
