"8000 new classrooms across Delhi, 45 new schools are ready, we have identified land for 100 more new schools, we have been working hard," he said.
Talk to AK: Elaborating on his government’s initiatives to step up access to quality education, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal today said that he intentionally did not get his son’s school changed to one in the national capital. “My son studies in a Noida school. I could have easily got him shifted to a school in Delhi. I did not do this because I don’t want to take any obligation from any school,” he said during his “Talk to AK” interaction.
“If my son studied in a Delhi school, and I would have implemented a reform to check the rise in school fee, I would have been told by that school that we gave admission to your son. I would have been in a weak position,” Kejriwal said. “Now, I can keep a check on the school fee that all schools are charging, and this will make education affordable,” Kejriwal said.
“8000 new classrooms across Delhi, 45 new schools are ready, we have identified land for 100 more new schools, we have been working hard,” he said.
In a first of its kind initiative for the AAP government, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal today interacted with the public through his “Talk to AK” initiative. Stating that his government believes only in honest governance, Kejriwal said, “You can only face and answer the public if you are honest. When you are in public life, you should be ready for public scrutiny.”
People from across India can reach out to the Delhi CM and ask questions via text messages and social media. Incidentally, Kejriwal decided to hold his interaction on the same day (Sunday) and time (11:00 AM) at which PM Narendra Modi holds his ‘Mann Ki Baat’ every month.
