The BJP has been attacking the Arvind Kejriwal government over alleged flaws in the construction of its schools. Therefore, AAP MLAs visited certain schools administered by the Municipal Corporation of Delhi on Saturday and emphasised their “poor state” to corner the party. The AAP lawmakers, including its chief spokesperson, Saurabh Bharadwaj, live-streamed their visit to the schools on social media, highlighting the “poor condition” of their structures, classrooms, restrooms, and campuses. They also criticised the BJP for questioning the Delhi government’s expenditure on the construction of its schools. Since the BJP has been in power in the MCD for 17 years, it has provided such schools and an education system to underprivileged children.

The BJP should apologise for playing with the future of Delhi and the country like this,” Sisodia said in a tweet in Hindi after AAP MP Sanjay Singh posted some pictures of “unhygienic” toilets and “dirty” premises of an MCD school on the microblogging site.

Students may be seen sitting on mats in a classroom in the images Singh tweeted. Bharadwaj claimed one teacher was instructing children from two distinct classes in one classroom while he was at a civic body-run school in the Greater Kailash neighbourhood. Because the school only has two teachers and a principal to teach children enrolled in prep to standard 5 classes, he added, “This is the situation here in every classroom.” The AAP leader questioned how one teacher could instruct kids in two distinct classes. “Imagine what would be the condition of youngsters studying here under this tin roof during Delhi’s blazing summer,” Bharadwaj added, pointing to a classroom ceiling.

“Children here do not have access to the facilities they require. These kids deserve the same things that students in Delhi’s government institutions do. If MCD is unable to help, I implore the Delhi government to take action on their behalf. Durgesh Pathak, an AAP legislator, claimed he was denied access to an MCD-run school in his Rajinder Nagar assembly district after visiting it. “I travelled to Inderpuri to visit this school, but as you can see, its front gate is locked. I was informed that I don’t have the authorization to visit its grounds. Along with me, a few parents arrived, but they were also denied access to see their children, the man stated.
