AAP chief additionally claimed that the three lakh college students won’t get books till December.
Aam Aadmi Social gathering (AAP) chief Durgesh Pathak on Sunday claimed that the BJP-ruled north municipal company has not given books to three lakh college students learning in colleges run by them.
Delhi BJP spokesperson Praveen Shankar Kapoor hit again, saying Mr Pathak shouldn’t politicise points and there’s a want for him to ask Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to launch municipal funds as per the fourth Delhi Finance Fee suggestions.
Addressing a press briefing, Mr Pathak claimed the BJP-ruled North Municipal Company of Delhi has not given books to three lakh college students learning in colleges run by them.
“Under North MCD there are around 3 lakh students and around 750 schools where these students study. From April this year, the new session has started and it is the responsibility of the North MCD to provide books to these 3 lakh students. It is August and not a single student of the BJP-run North MCD has received any book,” claimed Mr Pathak.
He additionally claimed that the three lakh college students won’t get books till December.
“This year there is a chance that the North MCD will use the excuse of COVID-19 pandemic, but last year also till November they could not provide a single book to the students and finally, they transferred money in the accounts of students to buy the books,” he stated.
The Aam Aadmi Social gathering calls for that the BJP-run north municipal company instantly present books and notebooks to the scholars inside 10-15 days, he stated.
“I also want to request Adesh Gupta, the Delhi BJP chief, to interfere and provide books to these children within 10 to 15 days,” he stated.
Delhi BJP spokesperson Kapoor stated “no doubt books have not been distributed to students of municipal schools and yes earlier too there have been odd situations like this”.
“But before raising this issue on a public platform AAP leaders should ask the chief minister why he has financially crippled the municipal bodies to a extent that they face such odd situations while trying to provide basic education, sanitation or health services,” he stated.
