Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann and Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia announced five guarantees to the people of the state in the field of education on August 17, ahead of the state’s Assembly elections later this year.
“We have come to Himachal to present five Education guarantees to the people of Himachal on behalf of Arvind Kejriwal with an appeal to the people of Himachal Pradesh to vote for the Aam Adami Party and form the government in the state,” said Sisodia while addressing the media.
Sisodia said that the government schools will be made “luxurious” in line with Delhi’s schools.
Guarantees to provide free education to all the children
“Kejriwal guarantees to provide good and free education to all the children of Himachal Pradesh. He guarantees that like Delhi’s government schools, all the government schools in Himachal will be made luxurious. He also guarantees that fees of private schools will not be allowed to increase unnecessarily. All temporary teachers of Himachal Pradesh will be made permanent and the vacant seats of teachers will be filled. Teachers will not be given any other work apart from teaching,” he said.
“These are five guarantees of Kejriwal that Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann and I have come to present before the people of Himachal Pradesh. We have hope that this time people of Himachal Pradesh will vote for ‘Jhaadu’ for a brighter future for children,” Sisodia added.
The AAP leader urged the BJP to not “make fun” by calling it “free ki revariya”.
“One request that I would like to make to the people of the Bhartiya Janta Party is that they are in power in the state and the country. Do not make fun of education by calling it ‘free ki revadiya’. For you, it could be ‘free ki revadi’, but for Arvind Kejriwal, it is guaranteed and for the common man, it is a guarantee of their kid’s brighter future. Please don’t make a mockery of it, he said.
