“Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) led Delhi government has enhanced the allotted budget for education by 50% and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia enhanced the budget for teachers’ training but failed to fill the 20,000 vacant post of teachers.”
Ahead of assembly polls in Delhi, Aam Aadmi Party’s much-hyped 70-point manifesto laid special emphasis on education and Arvind Kejriwal led AAP party also promised opening of 500 new schools. It’s been one year since AAP government came to power but there is no headway to their much-hyped promise. Now, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia enhanced the budget for teachers’ training from Rs 9.4 crore to Rs 102 crore, but 20,000 posts of teachers are still lying vacant in schools in Delhi.
Supreme court slams Delhi government
The Supreme Court has slammed the Delhi government for its “insensitivity” in failing to fill up over 20,000 posts of teachers in government schools and ordered suspension of the officers responsible for it. The apex court stated that the least Delhi government can do is pull up the responsible officers and put them under suspension and submit us an inquiry report.
Delhi government’s lame excuse
Delhi government has come up with a lame excuse for their inefficiency. As per AAP government, the education system in Delhi is not similar to other states. The government intends to recruit young skilled and dynamic candidates to teach education in an open and healthy environment. AAP government further stated that it has set stringent parameters for the selection of candidates for the posts of teachers in government schools. It must be noted here that as per government’s claims, it was not able to find any suitable candidate.
AAP government has mastered the art of covering up their inefficiency and they always have an excuse ready for their hollow claims. Their inability to fill 20,000 vacant posts of teachers in government schools has further proved this point.
