Ludhiana, March 3

After many initial hiccups, finally the School of Eminence at Indrapuri saw its inauguration today. With the latest infrastructure, building, state-of-the-art labs, library and swimming pool, a credit war seems to have taken place between AAP and the Congress leaders over the government school, which has now become the School of Eminence.

Its inauguration was scheduled in the third week of February but since a few “works were to be completed,” another date of inauguration was fixed for today. It was only after the arrival of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal that today the school was formally inaugurated by Kejriwal and Punjab Chief Minster Bhagwant Mann.

Taking a dig at this “unethical credit” taken by AAP leaders, Congress leaders MP Ravneet Singh Bittu and Sanjay Talwar, former Congress MLA, said the school was the brainchild of the Congress and the land and funds were released during the Congress regime but AAP wanted to sabotage everything by misleading people of the state that AAP had brought the same.

Kejriwal and Mann are exploiting the finances of Punjab for their own glorification. Full media campaigns are being run in all media houses for the inauguration of the ‘School of Eminence’ today. Posing a series of questions, MP Ravneet Bittu has asked AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal and Bhagwant Mann to tell the people of Ludhiana that who had brought the Indrapuri school project, and who had provided its budget?

Former MLA Sanjay Talwar and Bittu also asked both AAP leaders why the school was not made functional when everything was ready for the past two years?

“The level of publicity hunger was such that these leaders played with the future of 1,500 students, who would have started studying in the new campus with the latest infrastructure two years ago. The people of the city will never forgive the AAP government, which ditched the 1,500 students for two years just for mere publicity,” said Talwar. Coming down heavily on the Punjab Government further, the Congress leaders said both the Delhi Chief Minister and Mann want to take political mileage out of this project.

“The Indrapuri school was made on 3-acre land allotted by GLADA in which around Rs 12 crore was spent on the school building and other infrastructure and it was ready in 2022. It was the first school with a swimming pool and a game court but this government intentionally delayed its functioning because of political mileage,”Talwar said.
