New Delhi: After his rebuke directed at Narendra Modi government on Tuesday for blocking his work based tour to Moscow, Delhi deputy CM Manish Sisodia, later, revealed that the centre eventually approved his visit.
“Finally, GoI gave permission which was pending since 10 days, for World Edu. Conf. It would be my privilege to represent India’s knowledge legacy in front of world’s edu. ministers & help them know- how it can help in making the world a better place to live (sic),” he tweeted.
Earlier in the morning, the AAP leader took to Twitter and said that he has been denied permission by the Centre to speak at the conference about the reforms brought by the AAP government in the education sector in the national capital.
“I was invited to speak about Delhi Education reforms at the World Education Conference, Moscow. I was supposed to leave tonight but it’s unfortunate that Govt of India has not given permission. It’s pending ‘under process’ for last 10 days,” Sisodia tweeted.
In another tweet, he had also alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi does not want the Delhi government’s work to reach an international platform.
“Delhi’s education reforms have been getting international press coverage in past few months. It’s unfortunate that PM Modi doesn’t want this to reach int. platforms. Sir! Delhi is also part of India! If our schools get international recognition, it’s a matter of pride for India,” he tweeted.
The Delhi government has recently upped its ante by taking a series of steps for the betterment of education in the national capital.
Recently, Sisodia – who also holds the education portfolio had said that all government schools would be free up to Class 12. He had also said that Alumni Association of govt schools will be launched soon under which the government will be inviting alumni to work for uplifting of schools.
Additionally, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal had said that educational institutions in Delhi should strive to be among the top 10 institues of the world. He also assured that his government will provide the institutes with funds to achieve that aim.
