Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal spoke emotionally at the inauguration of a new branch of B R Ambedkar School of Specialised Excellence in Bawana. He remembered his former deputy Manish Sisodia, who had started the school with the aim of providing quality education for all. Kejriwal said that false charges had been framed against Sisodia and he had been jailed unjustly, but he would be granted bail soon. Kejriwal suggested that Sisodia’s imprisonment was due to the popularity of the Aam Aadmi Party and their success in building good schools.
Kejriwal also accused the BJP of trying to halt the progress of Delhi’s education revolution, but he promised to continue improving government schools. He claimed that Delhi’s schools were the best in the world, despite criticism from some quarters.
Later, Kejriwal criticized the police for failing to control crime in Delhi. He claimed that criminals had become “fearless” and people were losing faith in the police. He called on Lt Governor VK Saxena to focus on his constitutional duties instead of playing politics.
