The ongoing Twitter war between the Education Ministers of Punjab and Delhi on Monday escalated with Pargat Singh saying that he won’t let him get away like this.
Delhi Deputy CM and Education Minister Manish Sisodia had yesterday released a list of his 250 government schools. This afternoon, he repeated his challenge saying that there is no response from Pargat Singh even after 24 hours and he seems to be quitting the ground.
Soon after, Pargat retorted by tweeting, “You have released only list and locations of 250 schools. I think you were in such a hurry to respond that you didn’t even read what I had written. I had said that we would compare on the parameters of the National Performance Grading Index 2021.”
In a series of tweets, the Punjab minister sought school-wise enrollment numbers, permanent teachers, vacancies, 10th results and the names of principals from 2013-14 to 2019-20.
He said the same information was sought earlier too and added,”I wonder what you are hiding. But I will not let you get away like this.”
His fourth tweet read, “When there is decline in number of students, what education reform are you doing? When there are no principals, who are you sending on training? When students are failing in Class 10th, who is going for higher education? Why to talk about infrastructure, when there are no new schools?”
Since the Twitter war on the topic actually started between Pargat and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, he tagged him also along and wrote, “Since @msisodya ji might be reluctant to discuss these points, I will request @arvindkejriwal ji to give the complete list. Let us decide once for all who is real and who is fake.”
