NEW DELHI:  Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M K Stalin on Friday said his government will create a model school in the southern state on the lines of Delhi and invited Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to visit it.
Stalin who visited the Rajkiya Sarvodaya Bal Vidyalaya School in West Vinod Nagar and the Aam Aadmi Mohalla clinic opposite the school said, “I heard about the Delhi government schools and mohalla clinics from my cabinets and newspapers. I contacted Kejriwal a few months back and told him that I was keen on visiting the schools in Delhi. Today, I visited the schools and mohalla clinics with him. What he has built is excellent. I’m planning to build a model school like this in Tamil Nadu very soon. I request Kejriwal to come and visit our school.”

Stalin saw the school building thoroughly and attended the happiness class. He also met the children of Deshbhakti class and asked them about their experiences. During this event, the changes that took place in the government schools during the last seven years were depicted through a short film. Before the formation of the AAP government in Delhi, the government schools were referred to as tent schools. The film showed the formerly poor state of the government schools and how they lacked facilities in comparison to the Kejriwal government’s effort in bringing a revolutionary change.

Kejriwal also gave Stalin a glimpse of the government’s standout programmes. These included Business Blasters, Pre-Primary Classes, Happiness Curriculum, Deshbhakti Curriculum and Aam Aadmi Mohalla Clinic. Principal Secretary (Education) H Rajesh Prasad, Education Director Himanshu Gupta, Rajkiya Sarvodaya Kanya Vidyalaya Principal Jyotsna Minj and other dignitaries were present on the occasion.
Kejriwal said, “All states need to work together to help the country walk faster towards development.”

Stalin also visited Aam Aadmi Mohalla Clinic where he talked to the patients and doctors. Elucidating the reform in Delhi government’s education sector, Deputy CM Manish Sisodia said, “India has waited for a long time to see education on top in the priority list of political parties. This is a new beginning of a better world where states are coming forward to learn from each others’ best practices. It was indeed a pleasure welcoming Stalin in our government school where he learnt about how the wave of change in the Delhi education system was set over the years.”
