Manish Sisodia lauds Yogi Adityanath, says Delhi govt to scrap holidays marking birth, death anniversaries

New Delhi: Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Friday announced that the government has decided to cancel holidays marking the birth or death anniversary of eminent personalities.

Sisodia said the Delhi government's move was inspired by Uttar Pradesh.

"The Delhi government will cancel holidays on birth or death anniversary of eminent personalities. I have issued instruction to the chief secretary in this regard," he tweeted.

He also tweeted that one should always be ready to learn good things from other states. 

"The Uttar Pradesh government has taken a good initiative in this matter. We should always be ready to learn from other states," he said.

The Uttar Pradesh government had on Tuesday cancelled 15 public holidays, most of them had been declared by the previous Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and Samajwadi Party (SP) governments, apparently to keep certain sections of the society in good humour, often with an eye on the vote bank.

However, the state Cabinet at its meeting chaired by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath decided to cancel 15 such public holidays in educational institutions.

Adityanath had in his address on the occasion of Dr BR Ambedkar's 126th birth anniversary expressed concern over the shrinking academic session due to increased holidays.

Here is what Sisodia tweeted:
