Felicitating the students, Kejriwal said 18 crore children study in government schools across the country and most of them are in a poor state. “These government schools can be improved the way we did it in Delhi. We provided quality education to students and because of that 1,141 students of our government schools cleared JEE and NEET exams,” he said. Earlier, a perception was created that governments cannot run schools and such schools should be handed over to private players or handled through CSR initiatives, Kejriwal said.
“Education is not a matter of charity, it is a matter of right. The country’s poverty can be eradicated if we provide good education to every child,” he said. The chief minister felicitated 28 students who secured ranks in the top 1,000 in JEE and NEET exams.
