After free travel schemes for women AAP offers freebies to school students in Delhi, BJP calls it ‘act of desperation’

The AAP government had, earlier, come up with free metro rides for women, which attracted great criticism from all quarters. Women had objected to the decision as well.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has on June 22 offered to pay the examination fee charged by the CBSE from students in its schools from next year. This is yet another promise it made after offering free travel schemes for the women in Delhi.

Speaking on the announcement which was made in a felicitation ceremony organised for students and their parents at the Thyagaraj stadium here, Deputy CM Manish Sisodia said that it is difficult for those living in the huts to pay Rs 1500. “So we have decided that we will take the burden. ST-SC students paid Rs 50 and others paid Rs 1500 for their CBSE form fill-ups during Class 12 examination. So when students raised this question we decide to don the stage that we will pay the fees,” Sisodia added.

The BJP has, however, slammed the Arvind Kejriwal government, calling it ‘an act of desperation’.

“Whatever he is doing in his fifth year of rue is a clear reflection of a person who knows that the public is not with him and they are disgusted with his brand of politics. That they are going to definitely vote him out so, an act of desperation, he is coming out with not properly thought out processes,” said BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli.

“Mr Kejriwal came with a great movement with Anna Hazare and act against the Corruption movement, then everyone associated with the movement, he threw them out of the process. Did exactly opposite to whatever he professed. Thereafter he said I will never be with the Congress party but he went with the party, nothing in these five years has been there accepting allegation, about false promises and therefore whatever he is doing now,” Nalin Kohli added.

Earlier, the AAP government had come up with free metro rides for women. This dole was, however, slammed by the ‘Metro man’, E Shreedharan who had labelled it as an electoral gimmick. He had elaborated on the reasons why the move will prove to be catastrophic for not only Delhi Metro but Metros in other cities without enhancing women’ security in any manner.

On the matter of safety for women, the ‘Metroman’ said, “By giving free travel, the safety of women commuters is not at all enhanced. What about their safety once they step out of the metro and encounter lurking dangers on the road for want of safe link bus services? This is the area your Govt. should spend money and not fund free travel.”

He has earlier written to the Prime Minister too objecting to the Delhi government’s decision. Moreover, this decision of the Arvind Kejriwal government had attracted great criticism from all quarters. Women had objected to the decision as well.
