NEW DELHI: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to work together to improve schools and the education system across the country.
Offering his government’s expertise to improve schools, Kejriwal said they could use it to completely transform schools.
“Mr. Prime Minister, we have done a wonderful job in the field of education in Delhi. In five years, all public schools in Delhi have improved remarkably. Schools across the country can be improved in five years” , Kejriwal said in a series of tweets in Hindi.
“We have experience in this area. Please make full use of our experience for this. Let’s do it together for the country.”
In a tweet earlier this morning, while sharing the photo of Prime Minister Modi sitting in a classroom, Kejriwal tweeted: “I am very happy that today all parties and leaders of the country have to talk about education and schools. This is our greatest achievement. I hope education is not missed only during elections. All governments together can make their schools great in just five years.
Kejriwal’s remark came after Prime Minister Modi, who is on a two-day visit to Gujarat, visited a school in Gandhinagar and interacted with students.
