1,141 students from Delhi government schools cleared JEE and NEET exams, says Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal

Due to the quality education provided in government schools in Delhi, 1,141 students have cleared the JEE and NEET exams, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Friday.

Kejriwal was speaking at an event organized to felicitate the toppers of Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) and National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) at Thyagaraj Stadium here.

Congratulating the students, Kejriwal said that 18 million children are studying in government schools across the country and most of them are in poor condition. “These government schools can be improved the way we did in Delhi. We provided quality education to students and because of that, 1,141 students from our government schools cleared the JEE and NEET exams,” he said.

Earlier, a perception was created that governments cannot run schools and that such schools should be handed over to private players or run through CSR initiatives, Kejriwal said.

“Education is not a question of charity, it is a question of law. Poverty in the country can be eradicated if we provide good education to all children,” he said.

The Chief Minister congratulated 28 students who secured ranks in the top 1000 in the JEE and NEET examinations.
