Synopsis:
Ch. Anil Kumar said that Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia, who is also the Deputy Chief Minister, was playing into the hands of the private school lobby, as he seemed to be least concerned about the future of the tiny-tots seeking admissions, and the anxiety and worries of their parents. He said that on a rough estimate, there are around 4000 private schools in Delhi, but the Delhi Government does not have any information about most of these schools.

Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee president Ch. Anil Kumar said that the private schools’ lobby was not following the Government directive on nursery admission registration, and the Arvind Government was keeping a studied silence, with registrations scheduled to start tomorrow (Thursday), 18th February 2021. He said that the Delhi Government had directed 1700 private schools to upload guidelines and other information regarding nursery admission registration on the website of the Directorate of Education, Delhi Government, but only 25 schools have so far complied with the directive, that too by uploading the information only on their schools’ websites.

Ch. Anil Kumar said that these private schools were making a mockery of the online admission process, and wondered what was the reason behind the hush-hush manner in which nursery admission registrations were being conducted in February, though this process should have been completed by November-December, 2020 but was deferred due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Ch. Anil Kumar said that private schools were acting at their own whims, without any checks and balances, for the past six years, ever since Aam Aadmi Party came to power in Delhi. He said that parents were being fleeced by demanding heavy fees and lakhs of rupees in donations for nursery admissions. He said that Sisodia has become a pawn in the hands of the private schools’ lobby, as the Aam Aadmi Paty wants to collect funds from nursery admissions to fight upcoming Assembly elections in six States.

Ch. Anil Kumar said that in the past six years, nearly 1.25 lakh children left Government schools while the private schools made a massive gain, as they enrolled 2.19 lakh more students. He said that the Delhi Government, despite making big election promises that more new Government schools will be established, could not setup even one new school, which was a big boon for the private players.
