New Delhi, April 27 (IANS) BJP leader from Delhi Vijay Jolly on Saturday slammed Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in the national capital for its “anti-education” policies and for failing to regularise the jobs of 22,000 guest teachers.
The former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA from Saket alleged that despite being in power for four years, the Kejriwal-led government played hide and seek with the livelihood of 22,000 guest teachers working in different government schools in Delhi.
“The AAP government in Delhi failed to regularise the jobs of the guest teachers despite being in power after winning 67 out of the 70 Assembly seats. During the past four years, Arvind Kejriwal and Education Minister Manish Sisodia have failed to address the issue of regularising guest teachers, forcing the teaching community to agitate on the streets of Delhi,” Jolly said.
“Now the Delhi government’s reported decision to stop funds to 28 Delhi University colleges is akin to dropping a bomb on the education sector in the capital,” said Jolly, a former President of the Dehi University Students’ Union.
The decision would affect both teaching and non-teaching staff as well as the student community, Jolly said.
