AAP adopting a lax attitude about games at ground, ‘Khedan Watan Punjab Diyan’ remains publicity stunt: Bajwa

Chandigarh, September 17, 2022 (Yes Punjab News)
Senior Congress Leader and Leader of Opposition, Partap Singh Bajwa on Saturday said organising ‘Kheda Watan Punjab Diyan’ in a lavish event was nothing more than a stage drama to gain publicity. However, at the ground level, the AAP Government in Punjab has adopted a completely lax attitude towards sports and games in Punjab.

The Leader of Opposition said that the AAP government’s indifferent approach towards sports can be assessed from the fact government did not release funds to primary schools in Punjab to organise games in the government-run primary schools. Consequently, the teachers were forced to contribute from their own pockets to keep the show going.

Bajwa said that the teachers in Muktsar district got directions from the authority to hold the games, yet no funds were released. Subsequently, each school contributed Rs 5000 to provide refreshments, transportation, prizes to the students and other arrangements.

“Now the question arises, for how long the teachers would keep working this way to organise games, while the AAP Government is least bothered about sports. The funds that were spent on the lavish ‘Kheda Watan Punjab Diyan’ event could have been provided to primary schools to encourage young talents”, said LoP.

He said that an almost similar situation is being faced by the rest of the primary schools in the state. Children are not even provided with the basic sports infrastructure like uniforms, trainers and sports equipment. How can we expect them to compete at the national and international levels?

Bajwa said that a video went viral, in which government school children in Garhshankar were seen cleaning toilets. It seems that the schools are not provided with the funds to execute cleaning jobs. Children in government schools are forced to clean the toilets. Is this what AAP’s Delhi education model suggests that the AAP government in Punjab is attempting to implement?
