CBSE results: Delhi government congratulates itself on ‘fantastic performance’ before blaming Delhi LG for creating obstacles

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is a miracle. There can be no other reason for this curious study on psychology. On one hand, he congratulated and retweeted all tweets praising ‘great efforts’ of Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi for bettering the quality of education in Delhi.

Kejriwal retweeting praises.

But in a bipolar manner, he trained his gun on the Delhi LG, with whom he has picked a bone quite a few times and ‘congratulated’ the students for scoring well ‘despite all obstacles created by LG, BJP and PM’.

The degeneration of Modi critics is a case study for nervous breakdowns. Recently, his wife, Sunita Kejriwal took to Twitter to hit out on Baijal in what appeared to be a veiled threat to stop ‘harassing’ her widow sister. She even claimed how former Delhi LG Najeeb Jung is suffering from severe illness and ‘regretting what he did with AAP government’, calling it ‘Karma’. Kejriwal then chose to take it a step further and applaud work of Atishi Marlena, who was fired as an advisor on education to Aam Aadmi Party-led Delhi government after it was found that the posts were not sanctioned. When Delhi LG congratulated the students for their results, Arvind Kejriwal didn’t let the chance of confronting him slip by.

Atishi Marlena has no prior experience to influence government policies, despite that she was holding an influential position which did not even have a sanction. Others too came in support of Marlena.

But how much of these ‘achievements’ are true and how much of it is hype? The claims that this is the first time Delhi government schools have outdone private school are not completely true.

Even in 2012, 2013 and 2014 long before Aam Aadmi Party came into existence, the government schools fared better than private schools in Delhi. In 2009 and 2010 too, under Sheila Dikshit government, government schools had done better than private schools (pdf link).

Secondly, as this well-argued blog post points out, a large number of government schools in Delhi are not offering critical subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Biology. These are core subjects that bring down the pass rates as they are considered relatively difficult. This is an extremely crucial point. Government schools cannot claim to be doing their job unless they offer the crucial science stream to those interested in it.

So essentially, government schools in Delhi have always exceeded the performance of private schools. It is not something novel that the AAP government has achieved. Secondly, how in the world can Arvind Kejriwal pat himself on the back while congratulating students and blaming the LG is being logical realms. Thirdly, what Kejriwal should be doing is condemning himself and his government for not introducing vital subjects in many government schools. But then again, the AAP is known for not concerning itself with pesky issues like governance.
