Delhi’s hollow education system a gimmick, says Dharmendra Pradhan

Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has called the Delhi government’s education system hollow and gimmicky.

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

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

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

The New York Times report released last week 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 health portfolios. excise, in connection with alleged irregularities in the development and implementation of government excise policy.
