Today, Jitu Vaghani said, “If you like the American education system, go for it. Many have been there. You were born here, studied here, spent your life here, did business here. In fact , your children have studied here, now if like the education of another place, go to this state or country. In front of the journalists here, I want to ask them that they can go to any place they deem good.

Meanwhile, AAP became aggressive at reporting. AAP leader Isudan Gadhvi said: “The statement made by Vaghani is very sad, we condemn it. It is an insult to poor middle class students and parents. They don’t want to improve the system. That is why Narendra Modi chose such people in Gujarat government?Jitu Vaghani should apologize to students and parents immediately.
