Kerala govt denies AAP’s claims on “Delhi Model”

The Kerala government on Sunday categorically denied sending any officials to the national capital after the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) claimed Kerala dignitaries visited the city to study the ‘Delhi Model’.

Taking to its official Twitter handle, the AAP said, “Dignitaries from Kerala visit Delhi Govt Schools to witness the education revolution first-hand; say didn’t expect facilities to be THIS GOOD!

Impressed by Kejriwal Govt’s Happiness classes, educationists express the desire to implement it in Kerala.”

AAP MLA Atishi, who hosted the individuals, tweeted, “It was wonderful to host officials from Kerala at one of our schools in Kalkaji. They were keen to understand and implement our education model in their state. This is @ArvindKejriwal Govt’s idea of nation building. Development through collaboration.”

Meanwhile, the Kerala government denied the claims made by Delhi’s ruling party and said it had not sent anyone to the national capital.

Kerala’s Education Minister V Sivankutty replied to Atishi’s tweet and asked to know about the Kerala officials who went to Delhi, as claimed by her.

“Kerala’s Dept of Education has not sent anyone to learn about the ‘Delhi Model’. At the same time, all assistance was provided to officials who had visited from Delhi to study the ‘Kerala Model’ last month. We would like to know which ‘officials’ were welcomed by the AAP MLA,” he tweeted.

BJP IT Cell in-charge Amit Malviya also waded into the controversy and slammed the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for making a claim that has been denied by another government.

“AAP’s claims on Delhi’s “education model” are as fake as the visits to study it… Is Sisodia grooming new talent to take forward the lie on their non-existent education model?” tweeted Malviya.
