On education, AAP talked much but delivered little

AAP did not utilise money of education budget 2015-16 

In the second budget, the AAP once again made tall budgetary allocation in Education sector by 106 per cent. According to the AAP leaders, the second budget is a bonanza especially for education sector. However, the reality is entirely different from the tall claims of the AAP supremo and his deputy.

AAP did not utilise the money announced in the maiden budget for education sector

In the maiden budget, the party had promised so many lucrative plans and allocations for Education budget. According to the information, a budget allocation of Rs 3100 crore was set for the educations sector. However, the ruling government of AAP could not manage to spend even half of the amount from the allocated budget for education.

AAP government was busy in playing blame games, forgot to spend the money

After taking the reign of Delhi in 2015, the ruling AAP government kept itself busy in playing blame games. Kejriwal started launching attack on centre government for not supporting AAP. Then he started shouting at Delhi police for not cooperating Delhi government. Even he did not miss the chance to hold press conferences against the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi. So, a year passed and the ruling government forgot to spend the full allocated money on education.

AAP failed to disburse Centre’s fund for RTE programme

The centre government had granted Rs 30 crores amount to Delhi government for the proper implementation of Right to Education (RTE) programme for the poor strata of the society. However, only two per cent of the amount has spent on RTE.

AAP had promised 100 new schools in a year but gave only 21

AAP in its manifesto had promised that after forming the government, 100 schools will be constructed per year and in the span of five years, 500 new schools would be given to Delhi. However, the AAP failed to deliver its promise and after a year only 21 new schools constructed.

 

 

Public up in arms against Kejriwal for self-publicity

add

The people of Delhi who casted the votes to Aam Aadmi Party have been repenting on their decision as the national convenor of the party who had took the reins of Delhi a year ago failed to serve anything to the people.

People are up in arms against the Chief Minister, Kejriwal who is busy in self-publicity and forgotten the interests of people of Delhi. The AAP supremo has been projecting himself as a super hero in the different national newspapers.

Broken promise of Kejriwal

When he had took the reins of the national capital, he promised the people that he would not act like other politicians as he would hold the open darbars in the city to hear the problems of the people. However, the Chief Minister had held only a single darbar in a year. He started acted like other leaders and refrained himself from meeting the public.

The Chief Minister started avoiding the public as he is on the self-promotion. Sumith Awasthi, a resident of Tilak Nagar said that the Chief Minister is not on the invisible mode. He can be seen on the television channels or in the big advertisements of the newspapers.

All the national newspapers of different states carried the advertisements of the one year completion of AAP government in Delhi. The advertisements were not small but there were full page ads. When the national convenor visited Punjab for five days, the national English dailies carried three page advertisements of the achievements of Kejriwal’s government in Delhi.

According to the information from the government officials of Delhi, the concerned department has given the directions to give advertisements of achievements of the government in different newspapers publishing from every state. The officials told that the government feels that the maximum advertisements in the media would highlight the party and the people would be misguided easily.

Even the Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken had raised questions over the advertisements and he approached the High court also. The case is going on in the court. A year ago, the High court had pulled up AAP government for wasting taxpayers’ money in self-projection.

 

Kejriwal, a liar of the century

kejri first

“How articulately Arvind Kejriwal manipulates the reality can be judged during his hunger strike as Delhi CM in 2014. He had presented the wrong facts in media and the truth was entirely different.”

Kejriwal and company had started its first political inning two year ago and after taking the reins of Delhi government in the maiden polls, Kejriwal held a hunger strike in the national capital.

Kejri

The strike was called for the demands from the centre government and the CM was trying to pressurize the centre government through hunger strike. Kejriwal told the media that police acted on the centres’ directions and the main objective of the police was to make the rally a complete failure.

He had told the media that police did not allowed the supporters and workers of the party to have tea. The entire venue of the programme was hijacked by the police. There were no arrangements for the tea by police.

The truth was different as a news channel had found that the party workers were easily moving in the venue and they were enjoying tea at the stalls put up by the police. Moreover, the cops were also distributing the snacks to the party workers in the early morning at that time.

393577-kejriwal

Arvind Kejriwal on camera said during his hunger strike Delhi police closed all toilets, but on camera all of his supporters found using public toilets. Delhi police did not close public toilet. A news channel report had exposed the lie of Kejriwal. The party workers were seen openly using the public toilets and there was no cop outside the toilets.

Every statement of Kejriwal was fabricated with the wrong intention to spread the message to the public. However, the “topimaster” was caught on camera for levelling the false allegations against the party workers.

Moreover, the programme was organised because of the hunger strike of Kejriwal where the workers were enjoying tea and snacks. So, it was complete non sense of the party head that had observing hunger strike and on the opposite, the party workers were enjoying tea and snacks.

He was exaggerating the facts so that the public could be misguided but at that time a news channel exposed him.

One lakh diploma holders jobless in Delhi

unemployment

The youth of Delhi who unconditionally supported “Aam Aadmi Party” in the city have lost hopes for getting the job opportunity in near future. If we take a look at the diploma holders, the information from the government department revealed that there are one lakh job less diploma holders.

Unemployment is a problem in the national capital and the increasing number of jobless diploma holders is alarming but the ruling AAP has nothing to do with it. The number of unemployed holding diplomas of various courses has doubled from 47,000 to one lakh.

jobless

This data part of Delhi Government’s economic survey raised a serious question about the quality and future of diploma courses and vocational training programmes floated from time to time. But the previous governments in the city had done nothing to provide the jobs to diploma holders.

Not only is the rise worrisome but also the educational status of those reeling under the effect of unemployment is a cause of concern and it’s a major embarrassment for the Kejriwal government that won support from youth on the promise of “degree, income and wi-fi”.

The AAP government has talked about vocational training and skill development as part of its long-term education plan. But nothing has been done so far by the government of Muffler man in the city.

The Economic Survey makes it clear that many diploma holders are not getting jobs easily. The authorities of Delhi under the AAP regime not bother to focus on the vocational courses and diplomas offered in the city.

jobs

According to the information, the most of the unemployed diploma holders have studied up to graduation or less.

Kejriwal forgets unemployed youth, busy in self-publicity

The Kejriwal government had promised the unemployed youth to provide the employment. However, the ruling government has forgotten the promise as the party supremo is busy in self-publicity. The “AAP” supremo has allocated a budget of Rs 526 crore for information and publicity. Every month, the money from state exchequer is being given for the publicity. An official of Delhi government has revealed that approximately Rs 25 crores have been spent on the advertisements. When the government completed one year, crores of rupees were spent on the paid advertisements in all the major newspapers in the country. But the government has not spent even a single penny to eradicate the problem of unemployment.

 

“Education’ can be a small word but it has a vast meaning. Without education, person is no more than a mammal.”

Right school from the very beginning for a child can set the stage for the rest of a child’s academic and professional future. School is the place where the child’s brain gets exposed to a wide range of subjects, cultures and recreation, both in and out of class.

Not a single new school by Kejriwal..Poor facilities in existing Schools

People of Delhi, who looked up with hope and expectations towards Kejriwal-led AAP government, are now feeling deceived by the same AAP, as it has not changed the fate of Delhi at all in the past one year.

college_students--6_350_123112020021

As many of the existing primary schools in the National capital lack the basic amenities like appropriate classroom, clean drinking water and toilets; Kejriwal has even failed to transform the primary education system in Delhi. Without chairs and tables, students are seen sitting on carpets or floor, trying hard to write properly as they keep notebooks on their laps. Even classes are being taken in sports area or corridors in some of the Delhi schools, where there are more than 7,500 students studying in two shifts.

AAP’s Manifesto – a failure

Kejriwal in his elaborate manifesto had shown ‘big dream’ to the people of Delhi, as he promised 500 schools and 20 colleges of world class standards, with excellent state-of-the-art amenities and ambience. Out of those 500 schools, 50 ‘model’ schools were also promised, which would be at par with private schools in the Capital city. But, in reality he has failed to build up even a single school even after one year of completion of his governance. Concept of ‘model’ schools is a complete failure.

Students suffer

school-children21Students suffer as most of the government schools are either short on teachers or they lack essential amenities’ like computers & labs for practical. Power supply is also erratic. Also, the situation gets worse during the rainy season as most of the schools in Delhi have seeping walls, dripping ceilings, flooded floors and open wiring. Students in most of the schools live their lives in fear, as these open wires can cause electric shock.

 

Despite of doubled budget, AAP government has not been able to meet its ambitious plan of making Delhi an educational hub. Any idea, where are these funds being spent?

Reasons behind the failure, are AAP government’s time consuming controversies as well as absence of Delhi’s Chief Minister and AAP’s National convener Kejriwal, who is now-a day’s busy either in spreading his wings across Punjab or enjoying his vacations with family out of Delhi.

No CCTVs; Women of Delhi are unsafe

When there was an outcry against brutal murder and rape of Nirbhaya, Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party’s National convener Arvind Kejriwal had promised to install 15 lakh CCTV cameras across the Capital city.  Delhi gang rape is still on people’s minds, with nothing changed even after two years of the incident. CCTV’s in the most crowded areas of Delhi are still missing, as Kejriwal is now least bothered about women and her safety.

Delhi’s deficit

Delhi has a lot of deficiencies when it comes to safety of women. According to the data of 2015-16 (till 14 February), since AAP came to power, there has been a stark rise in the incidents of rape and molestation. Almost 250 cases of Rape and more than 350 cases of molestations had been registered per month, only in Delhi. While the capital city’s crime graph continues to ascend, AAP government is yet to fulfill its promise and install 15, 00000 CCTV cameras.

AAP has failed

It’s been more than one year now that the AAP government is still not able to formulate a city-wide policy for acceptable certifications and getting security clearances. When would be tender floated, when would 15 lakh CCTV cameras get installed by AAP government?

No helpline No., No Punishment for offenders

AAP government just gained publicity by announcing a series of measures in past one year, but has failed on providing Helpline Number to the females travelling in the DTC buses. Anti-rape law that imposes stricter punishment for sex crimes does not get implemented after AAP had announced the same, they are the ones now who are protecting rapists.

Public transport is one of the critical spaces where sexual harassment takes place, so installation of CCTVs is essential in the buses. When a woman raises her voice against the person who tries to invade her personal space in a bus, nobody supports her. Indeed they face harassment and often suffered these experiences in silence as they feared retaliation.

Views of Women

Anuradha Grover, a Delhi teacher, confirms the trend, “Since my college days, I used to travel by DTC buses and have seen no change over the years. Generally, a student or young girl fails to deal with the harassment and if she decided to raise her voice against eve-teasing or molestation, there is no help forthcoming”.

No “do’s and Dont’s” work! I was given a long list by my mother when I started commuting by DTC buses in Delhi”, says Garima, who is just 25. “Even Metros don’t seem to be safe for women commuters”, she adds.

India’s Rape Capital – Delhi

delhi-rape-capital-of-india

Instead of improving the image of Capital city which is now-a-days being called “India’s Rape capital”, Kejriwal enjoys his leisure trips – first 10 days in Bengaluru and now 10 days in Punjab in the name of election campaign.

Kejriwal had also promised to deploy 10,000 Home Guards and Marshall’s for women security in buses. Not even a single Home Guard has been engaged for this task while many Nirbhaya’s continue to be molested in the absence of street lights and poor public transport in Delhi. Most vital thing is installation of those 15 lakh CCTV cameras that were promised by Kejriwal in his election manifesto.

Delhi’s Free water – Reality

54484

Now that Aam Aadmi Party is going to complete its one year in governing Delhi, it was not time-consuming to write about their broken promises and outright U-turns, as there is no work done at all.

Like Greek saying “to win a person’s heart, serve him the aromatic savory of his choice”, same is what Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party applied during its campaign – that promises win elections and hearts. But, it forgot the basic principle; to not keep promises loses you the next election.

Now, Delhi government has come up with a solution to cover up for its failures – one is to blame its opponents making wild accusations and second making people of Delhi fool by diverting their attention to other pity issues. Kejriwal distracted the public and his opponents from his U-turns with daily dose of new discussions in media or social media and claimed himself as ‘victim’ whenever countered by his opponents.

Providing people of Delhi, Free Wi-Fi, Electricity and most importantly water were among few of their promises.  As that is easier to say then to do, AAP has failed in one year.

water

AAP’s water policy goes notably against the poor and the lower middle class. Metered households with a family size greater than five members pay for all the water consumed as their usage is higher on a per household basis. In contrast, Delhi is proving ‘almost’ free water to rich people as it pays subsidy to those who can afford to pay more and need lesser amount of water on daily basis.

Kejriwal who had promised to provide free water to the people of Delhi had forgotten to include unauthorized colonies and jhuggi jhoppri. That clearly indicates – no free water to almost 50% of Delhi, as the money needed to upgrade infrastructure goes into the pockets of corrupt politicians or freebies.
