Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday recalled his IIT-JEE success and compared each rank to a student in Delhi – underscoring his claim that “education alone can make India good”. best in the world”.
“I am ranked 563 in IIT-JEE”, Chief of Delhi said, “This morning in Delhi, I met the son of a security guard from a government school who is rated 569. His father he gets a salary of Rs 12,000 a month When this boy ends his IIT he will have a starting salary of Rs 20,000 a month That will be the end of poverty for that family if we I do it for all my children, every family in India will become rich… in a generation.”
He was speaking at an NDTV Town Hall in Delhi, where he spent a lot of time campaigning for the BJP’s cancellation in the council polls taking place in December.
Earlier, Mr. Kejriwal met with government school students who had passed the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) for India’s Leading Institute of Technology (IIT). “It was an emotional moment for me as I was an IIT alumnus. This country has given me so much,” he said, “And it’s been my dream ever since, just like me. , all Indian children, even the poorest of the poor, enjoy the same facilities.”
He said 1,141 students from public schools in Delhi passed the IIT-JEE and NEET medical entrance exam this year.
In essence, education and health – programs that deliver services and benefits – remain the main goals of AAP in its ‘Make India No. 1’ campaign, which came about after AAP beat Punjab in earlier this year and revive its broader ambitions. The BJP, Congress and other parties opposed to AAP have said that Delhi’s “free education and health model” is based on “propaganda”.
Above allegations of corruptionsuch as an alleged fraud in alcohol policy in Delhi, Mr. Kejriwal said, “It’s just the BJP saying things … that don’t make much sense.”
He said the case only targeted his deputy in Delhi, Manish Sisodia, because of his success as Education Minister.
“Why didn’t they arrest him? He challenged the BJP. Or the Prime Minister should apologize to him. In this so-called corruption case, nothing has been found; nothing will be found.” , he said.
The BJP yesterday showed a secretly recorded video in which a defendant in the FIR – in which Mr Sisodia was also named – claimed the Delhi government had prevented smaller players from adopting the special policy. special “custom” to help some people.
Mr. Sisodia react with irony: “The BJP should give this so-called sting to the CBI, which is anyway operating as an outside party agency. Over the next four days – until Monday – the CBI will arrest me if there is any any proof.”
