The statements of the education ministers of Gujarat and Delhi have now taken the form of a political battle. Actually Gujarat’s Education Minister Jitu Vaghani had given a statement on the education system. Delhi’s Deputy CM Manish Sisodia has now retaliated to this statement. Gujarat’s education minister had said on Wednesday that those who are unhappy with the state’s education system should take their children out of Gujarat.
On this statement, Delhi Education Minister and Aam Aadmi Party leader Manish Sisodia on Thursday claimed that his party will form the government in Gujarat and the state will have a brilliant education system like Delhi.
Manish Sisodia said, ‘During the rule of BJP, which has been in power in Gujarat for 27 years, the education system of Gujarat has become in disrepair and when the people of Gujarat demand to improve the education system, then the education minister of Gujarat gets arrogant. Jitu Vaghani says by tweeting, ‘Whoever has complaint about the education system of Gujarat, they should leave Gujarat and go to Delhi.’
Senior AAP leader and Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Friday termed the statement of Gujarat Education Minister as arrogant and said these things while condemning it. He said that if the Education Minister of Gujarat has so much arrogance, then I will go to Gujarat on Monday to see whether the BJP government has done any work in the last 27 years to fix the schools of Gujarat. I want to ask him what is his vision for education?
During the inauguration ceremony of a new school building in Rajkot on Wednesday, Vaghani had said, “There are such people here. Those who live in Gujarat, grew up in Gujarat, their children got married here and they run their business here. But now he has become fond of some other place. In the presence of journalists, I would like to make this request to those who find other places better. Please, take your children’s certificates and enroll them in the country or state that suits you best. “
However, after the controversy erupted, Gujarat Education Minister Jitu Vaghani clarified that he has respect for the state and its people and his statement was for those who want to spread ‘chaos and disorder’.
