Debate is going on between the Chief Ministers of two states regarding the closure of schools in Assam on twitter. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has once again responded to the debate that started on Wednesday with the tweet of Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma. In fact, the state government in Assam decided that 34 schools would be closed due to poor results. On this, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal tweeted, “Closing the school is not the solution. We need to open many new schools all over the country right now. Instead of closing the school, improve the school the education.”

In response to this, the CM of Assam said, “Dear @ArvindKejriwal Ji – As usual you commented on something without any homework! Since my days as Edu Minister, till now, please note, Assam Govt has established/ taken over 8610 NEW SCHOOLS; break-up below. How many new schools Delhi Government has started in last 7 yrs?”
Sarma said in another tweet, “the Assam government has provincialized or made private schools government since 2013, including primary 6802; Madhyamik 1589 Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya – 81, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Avasik Vidyalaya – 3, Adarsh Vidyalaya – 38 and Tea Garden Model School – 97.” Sarma tweeted, “Curious to know Delhi’s figures!”
After this, Kejriwal tweeted and said that you seem to have agreed. AAP’s national convener tweeted, “Hey! Looks like you got it wrong. It was not my intention to bring out your shortcomings. We are all one country. We have to learn from each other. Only then will India become the number one country. I will visit Assam. Tell me when can I visit? You show your good work in the field of education. You come to Delhi, I will show you the works of Delhi.”
The Delhi government has been continuously claiming that it has further improved the education system in the Union Territory. Recently, Kejriwal had proposed to give Bharat Ratna to the state’s Deputy CM and Education Minister Manish Sisodia for working in the field of education.
