New Delhi: Hitting out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi yet again, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Tuesday alleged that the Centre has not given him the permission to go to Moscow to speak about education reforms. “Prime Minister Narendra Modi does not want the Delhi government’s work to reach an international platform,” Sisodia said.
In a series of tweets, Sisodia also claimed that his request is under process for the past 10 days.
“I was invited to speak about Delhi education reforms at the World Education Conference, Moscow. I was supposed to leave tonight but it’s unfortunate that Government of India has not given the permission. It’s been ‘under process’ from last 10 days. Delhi’s education reforms have been getting international press coverage in past few months. It’s unfortunate that PM Modi doesn’t want this to reach international platforms,” he said.
Furthermore he added, “Delhi is also part of India! If our schools get international recognition, it’s a matter of pride for India!”‘
Last year, Sisodia had showcased Delhi Education model at the Global Education conference in Moscow, in front of educationist from 40 countries. “After my presentation on Delhi’s schools in the Conference at Moscow, many countries have shown interest in exchange programs with Delhi,” Sisodia had claimed in 2017.
