The education minister calls the education system of the Delhi government hollow

Launching a scathing attack on the Delhi government, Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan termed the state’s education system as “empty” and “a gimmick”.

Attacking AAP’s dispensation on excise policy, Pradhan said his “friends” Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his deputy Manish Sisodia are trying to cover up their “theft” by highlighting the New York Times story on Delhi’s education system.

“Delhi’s education system is khokhla (empty) and a nautanki (trick). According to the National Achievement Survey, the performance of Class 10 and 12 students in government schools in Delhi has been steadily declining,” Pradhan said in his speech at Business Today’s ‘[email protected] conclave’ on Friday.

“They are just trying to cover their theft with the excise policy by showing the New York Times article when in reality the situation is different,” he added.

The New York Times report published last week had sparked a war of words between the BJP and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) after the CBI raided the residence of Sisodia, who also holds the education and excise portfolios , in relation to alleged irregularities in the preparation and implementation of the government’s excise policy.

The New York Times story was based on “unbiased and on-the-ground reporting,” the US paper had said while rejecting the charge of paid news.
