Punjab CM Mann Visits Schools And Insts In The Nat’l Capital, Opposition Lashes Out

Bhagwant Mann, accompanied by his senior officers, is expected to visit health institutes and schools in the national capital on Monday to learn the “Delhi model” and replicate it in the state, a Punjab government official had said.

In order to learn the “Delhi-Model” and replicate it in Punjab, CM Bhagwant Mann is expected to visit the health institutes and schools in the national capital on Monday, as said by an official of the Punjab government.

The opposition has slammed CM Bhagwant Mann over his Delhi visit. Both, the Congress party as well as the Shiromani Akali Dal has attacked Mann’s visit, saying it’s a “political drama” and a “photo-op” event of the AAP and CM Mann.

Former PPCC president Navjot Singh Sidhu has tweeted:

CM @BhagwantMann’s 2 day Delhi visit is a deviation from real issues, mere photo op for benefit in other elections & waste of state exchequer. Pb needs policy to get out of Financial, Farmers & Power crisis. Local problems need local solution. Solution lies in Income generation.

Similarly, the newly appointed PPCC chief and Gidderbaha MLA Amarinder Singh Raja wrote:

“In the last one month, 14 farmers of Punjab died by suicide under the AAP government. How many of these 14 farmer families did you meet @BhagwantMann sir? You go to Delhi again and again. Hope you are not trying to bring Delhi’s failed #Corona fighting model here? Will the government run from Delhi like this for 5 years?”

Meanwhile, senior Akali leader and former minister Daljit Singh Cheema has said:

“Before planning a tour to study Delhi model of education @BhagwantMann should have toured his own schools first to understand their strength & weaknesses. Today’s political drama may be helpful in selling this pseudo model in poll bound states but won’t be of much help to state.”

During his visit to one of the schools in Delhi, Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann has said:

“This is next-level education. Something which can’t be thought of by big schools has been implemented by government schools. Digital education is taking place. There is collaboration with big companies. I’ve seen such schools in America-Canada but not in India”.

“I spoke with several students here, and where did they study earlier. They dropped out of big private schools to get enrolled here. They say that they have more facilities here. These students have new ideas. It’s mindblowing,” he further added.

While Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal said: “Let us work together to strengthen the education system of the country”. The Punjab CM has been accompanied by a group of senior officers from both school education, and health and family welfare departments, to take inputs on the two crucial sectors in the national capital.
