New Delhi, June 12, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
Deputy Chief Minister Shri Manish Sisodia addressed a press conference on Saturday and raised strong questions against the report released by the Central Government crediting the Punjab Government for hosting the best government schools in the nation.
This report alleged that Punjab is No.1 for Government Schools. Shri Sisodia said, “This report is just another arrow that points towards the direction of the solid friendship between ModiJi and Captain Amarinder Singh, in lieu of the upcoming Punjab elections in 2022.
Crediting Punjab Government with the best government schools in the country at a time when Punjab has seen the closure of more than 800 schools, and several schools found to be functioning as alcohol factories, is a farce. It is crystal clear that Captain Amarinder Singh has the blessings of ModiJi and Central Government for the upcoming elections and we can consider this report as a gift to Capt. Singh.”
Shri Sisodia said, “This report claims that Government Schools in Punjab have emerged to be the best while pointing that Government Schools in Delhi are not up to the mark.
This report is just another way to show the blessings ModiJi has showered on Capt. Amarinder Singh, extending a hand of friendship similar to the previous election. Strangely enough, this report has been released at a time when people have been raising questions regarding the performance and inadequacies of the Punjab Government in education.”
Speaking on the abysmal conditions of Punjab Government Schools, Dy CM Shri Manish Sisodia said, “Quality education and learning has become a joke in Punjab Government Schools. ModiJi has released this report to hide the inadequacies in quality education of Punjab.
In the last 3-4 years, almost 800 government schools have shut down in Punjab, and have been given to NGOs or other institutions to function. Many government school students have had to suffer due to gross negligence of the Punjab Government.
Many children had to bear the brunt and parents had to transfer their children to Private Schools. In fact, a few government schools in Punjab were also found to be hosting alcohol factories in their premises. In a few days, ModiJi will release another report claiming that Punjab’s Government Hospitals are the best in the country.
This is just a collaborative tactic for the upcoming elections; it is a strategy for Punjab Government to hide behind the garb of false reports and cover up for their negligence”
Shri Sisodia reiterated that Captain Amarinder Singh has made a joke out of the whole education system in the State and to ridicule the system further, ModiJi has released this report to hide his inadequacies and bless him for the upcoming elections. Following the release of this report, all that the Punjab government has done is release advertisements and hide behind this farce to cover up for its inadequacies.
