Gujarat Education Minister Jitubhai Vaghani’s controversial statement on Wednesday has invited a sharp reaction from Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who taunted that there was no need to leave Gujarat for Delhi-like education if the people voted the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) to power.
He was reacting to Vaghani’s statement in Rajkot on Wednesday after inaugurating a new school building that those who had issues with Gujarat’s education system could leave the State and find a better place in India or abroad.
Sisodia tweeted on Thursday, “Yesterday, Gujarat Education Minister threatened the people of Gujarat by saying that whoever desires good education should go to Delhi.”
Sisodia asserted, “BJP has failed to provide good education even in 27 years. People don’t need to leave Gujarat. Bring the AAP government to Gujarat and get access to Delhi-like education.”
