“If the people of UP vote for us, we will provide them with an improved education system,” he said. Sisodia was of the view that “AAP has emerged as a good option” for the people of Uttar Pradesh who are always concerned about the need for proper education system in the state.
He accused the BJP-led state government of reducing the education budget from 17% to 13%. “Because of this, the education system in UP has collapsed,” he said.
Sisodia further complained that about 40% of UP schools do not have power supply and most of the school buildings are in dilapidated condition.
He said, “If UP forms its government in UP, we will immediately allocate 25% of the budget for education. Not only government schools will be a good place for education, all the vacancies will be filled without delay. ”
He further promised that as per the initiative of the Delhi government, teachers in UP would also be trained abroad.
Sisodia added, “If we win the UP elections, we will give 300 units of electricity to all families for free. Also, the AAP government will come up with better plans for higher education for poor children.
“The quality of education in UP government schools is so bad that 60% of children’s parents are forced to send their wards to private schools. If we go back five years and look at the records, about 60% of the children went to government schools. But that has changed now, ”he complained. “Moreover, there is a lack of toilets in UP schools which has adversely affected female teachers,” he added.
“More than 1.25 lakh Shiksha Mitra pillars are being posted to build their future in the education sector,” he said.
Sisodia claimed that the AAP-led Delhi government has improved the education infrastructure in the national capital and the condition of government schools is better than that of private schools. He said many children studying in government schools in Delhi have passed NEET and many of them are studying in IITs.
