Reminding the AAP government that poll campaigning in schools is ‘bad influence’ on children, the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) wrote a letter to Arvind Kejriwal led Delhi government a day after the Delhi Chief Minister and his deputy Manish Sisodia campaigned for Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) at a school event for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

The letter from the Child right body came following a complaint received from the president of Delhi Parents Association, Aparajita Gautam, about the ill effects of such unannounced “election campaigns”, hampering children’s tutelage.

Invoking Section 13 (1) (i) of CPCR Act 2005, NCPCR wrote to the Delhi government stating that, such election campaigns and unannounced visits by ministers and party workers to Delhi government schools interrupt the studies of children and prove to be a bad influence on the students.

The letter further read that such visits should be undertaken keeping in mind the safety and security of the students in these schools. “It has been requested that identity and purpose of the visit are to be verified thoroughly from any visitor in the school and proper entry registers are to be maintained at the main gate,” the NCPCR said in its letter.

While laying the foundation stone for 11,000 new classrooms across 250 schools at the Sarvodaya Kanya Vidyalaya on Monday, Kejriwal and Sisodia sought votes for Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

Addressing children and parents at the Sarvodaya Kanya Vidyalaya in New Friends Colony, the duo had displayed their apathy after they sought votes for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in the name of children. He had said, “If you love your children, vote for those who are working for your children and if you don’t love your children, then go and vote for Modiji. Modiji has not built even a single classroom or a school. You have to choose between love for nation or love for Modi”.

Addressing the students, the deputy CM, also the education minister, Manish Sisodia, followed the suit and displayed his narrow mindedness by saying, “Go home and ask your parents if they love you or not. If they say they love you, ask them to vote for those who are building schools.”

On Sunday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had declared his verdict on the patriotism of people who support PM Modi. Posting a tweet, Kejriwal had claimed that people who support PM Modi cannot be patriots and patriots can never be supporters of PM Modi.

During a recent event, Kejriwal had also announced that he will go to any extent to defeat PM Modi and Amit Shah.
