Delhi schools woes: Despite tall promises by Delhi govt, school in Kalkaji does not have drinking water, clean toilets

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal may be busy making tall claims about the 'fantastic work' his government has done for government schools, the reality shows a different picture.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal may be busy making tall claims about the ‘fantastic work’ his government has done for government schools, the reality shows a different picture. A school in Delhi’s Kalkaji, which falls under Greater Kailash constituency of AAP MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj does not have drinking water for school students.

Parents have also complained of lack of water in toilets especially girls’ toilets. in the school.

The school is so unclean that even the water tanks were last cleaned over a year back.

School official sources who do not wish to be named say that they have written to Delhi government over four months back, but no action has been taken.

Dr Nandini Sharma, SDMC Education Committee Chairperson and Malviya Nagar councillor said that she has been receiving messages from concerned people about the shabby state the school is in. A lot of the students from the nearby labour camps go to study in the school. However, lack of urinal facilities and drinking water facilities make it difficult for them.

Speaking to OpIndia, Dr Sharma said, “Shocked to know that Delhi government secondary school at Kalkaji is not having drinking water and toilet facilities. The students studying in this school go without water through out the day. Girls have to urinate on the floor as there is no water in school from last three months.”

Adding that Delhi Deputy Chief Minister and also Education Minister of Delhi Manish Sisodia is giving wrong picture about the government schools, she said, the school does not even have the basic facility of drinking water.”

Apparently, the grim situation in the school in Kalkaji is not new.

One Twitter user had informed AAP MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj about water crisis in government school in Kalkaji way back in May 2017. For a government which takes pride in changing the landscape of Delhi government school, especially in terms of infrastructure, the true picture, however, is quite different.

We had earlier reported how the Delhi government is painting a rosy picture about government schools which are ridden with problems. Supporters of Aam Admi Party (AAP) including Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal are perpetually boasting that a revolution has taken place in the field of education in Delhi. They are never tired of saying that Delhi’s government schools have turned world class. However, a study of trends of board results over last few years shows 10th board exam results have actually shown a downward trend.
