Due to the quality education provided in Delhi government schools, 1,141 students have cleared JEE and NEET exams, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Friday, September 16, 2022.The statement was made while the chief minister was delivering a speech at an event organised to felicitate toppers of the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) and the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) at Thyagaraj Stadium.

Furthermore, felicitating the students, Kejriwal noted that 18 crore children study in government schools across the country and most of them are in a poor state. “These government schools can be improved the way we did it in Delhi. We provided quality education to students and because of that, 1,141 students of our government schools cleared the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) and NEET exams,” he said.

The country’s poverty can be eradicated if we provide good education to every child,” the CM said.

In addition, the chief minister felicitated 28 students who secured ranks in the top 1,000 in JEE and NEET exams.
