Delhi’s deputy CM Manish Sisodia accepts UP ministers’ challenge on debate on education in UP. Says he’s coming to Lucknow on 22nd December

After Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejrival’s announcement on Tuesday regarding AAP’s decision to contest on all the seats of Uttar Pradesh in 2022 assembly elections, the Delhi government’s deputy CM Manish Sisodia has accepted the challenge of Uttar Pradesh education and other ministers’ who had asked Delhi AAP government’s CM to debate with them on worsening education, health sectors as per the allegations levelled by him in his virtual press conference, the other day.

The Delhi deputy CM n education minister Manish Sisodia has declared that he is coming to Lucknow on 22nd December and would love to accept the challenge of debate with the UP CM Yogi Adityanath, education minister or any other minister on UP’s education, health on any other sector but repeated that they should not back out now.

Expressing his views on the worst conditions of Uttar Pradesh schools comparing them with “Tabelas” where cows n buffaloes are housed and worsening mid day meals’ quality like serving salt with chapaties in several schools highlighting the various news reports of newspapers in Google search, deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia said that the frustration developed amongst the UP ministers after AAP’s national convenor Arvind Kejrival’s declaration about AAP contesting on all the seats in Uttar Pradesh in 2022 unambiguously speaks of the fact that the arrow of Delhi CM has accurately hit the right target.

Praising the Delhi governments’ efforts in upgrading the status of Delhi government schools Manish Sisodia said that the Delhi government school results have been 98% successful with several students passing in IIT and NEET examinations n securing 98% marks hailing from the poor n economically deprived sections of the society.

He said that there have been revolutionary change in the government schools of Delhi for the good, as Delhi government has allocated 25% of the total budget to education, being highest in India, among all states and also sent their teachers n students to Harvard and several foreign universities to seek adequate training n education including giving freedom and respect to Teachers of Delhi government schools.

Manish Sisodia said that Delhi government has laid special emphasis on government schools, health sector, electricity, water and amelioration of the grievances of its inhabitants and won the trust and confidence of the electorates by it’s hard work and dedication but unfortunately in Uttar Pradesh, the education system is allegedly collapsing with some schools turning into Tabelas as per the news reports of Dainik Bhaskar and other newspapers.

He, while accepting the challenge of certain ministers of UP has said that he is coming to Lucknow on Monday and would invite the CM UP or education minister etc to come n debate with me.

He also urged the UP’s education minister to identify only ten schools where the UP government has converted them as outstanding model schools during the last one year.

It may be recalled that deputy CM Manish Sisodia had been to Uttarakhand recently to revive the AAP which has already decided to contest on all the seventy seats of Uttarakhand in 2022 followed by Arvind Kejrival’s announcement regarding AAP’s contesting in all the 400 assembly seats of UP n in both these cases the Delhi CM had said that the people of Uttarakhand n UP had approached him saying that they are now fully disenchanted with the national parties like BJP, Congress, SP n BSP who had betrayed them for the last several decades and wanted AAP to come in the fray in 2022 improving their health, education, industrial sectors on the pattern of Delhi.
