The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) slammed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) after reports emerged that Ryan International School was allegedly forcing its staff to enroll with the political outfit, saying these attempts are a reflection of the saffron party’s restlessness after the drubbing in the Delhi Assembly polls.
AAP has also demanded strict action against the school management in this regard.
“The development is a matter of grave concern and raises alarm bell over forcing of one particular ideology in the society through various mediums and least of all through institutions of education which are temples to impart free and fair knowledge without discrimination. The act is akin to playing with the future of the nation by politicising education.
“The incident reported from Ryan International School is part of the BJP’s design to saffronise education system in India,” a party statement said.
“The true face of the BJP’s membership numbers have also been exposed and signals towards the restlessness and panic in the ranks of the party after its rout in the recent Delhi elections,” the statement added.
