Kejriwal said that it is merely a political gimmick to misguide the people as the Delhi government has not done anything concrete in the education department except for wasting huge amounts of money on advertisement.
"The plight of schools in Delhi can be understood by the fact that there are several schools without any proper toilets, roofs and drinking water," said Mr. Kejriwal.
According to Manish Sisodia, spokesperson of the AAP, no new schools have been opened. "It is a mere lip service and there was no ground work other than another example of organised form of corruption. In the crores being wasted on these advertisements, the State government could have built a new school," he added.
Educationist Firoz Bakht Ahmed, who recently joined forces with the AAP pointed out the hypocritical stand of the Congress on education.
"It was the same Congress that got the poor children's qaumi school demolished in Old Delhi during Emergency on the promise of rebuilding it. But since then the school is in shambles, where the students have to brave heat, cold and rains," he said.
He added that he has been writing to the Presidents, Prime Ministers and others who are politically influential but all his pleas fall on deaf ears. "Nobody is bothered. Such ads will only distance the people from Congress," he said.
