Return from Finland ASAP: Najeeb Jung to Manish Sisodia
'Learning from across the world is not a sin. It's a sin to defame an educational tour as a holiday'.
New Delhi: While the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) sees a conspiracy in the manner in which the media is questioning foreign junkets of Delhi ministers, Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung appears to have taken it upon himself to correct the situation.
As per a report in NDTV, Jung has asked Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia to return from Finland as soon as possible.
The LG's order comes at a time when Delhi is battling an outbreak of dengue, chikungunya, and other vector-borne diseases.
Sisodia, who holds the education portfolio, is currently in Finland to study the country's education system.
However, the AAP leader has remained unrepentant.
“Learning from across the world is not a sin. It's a sin to defame an educational tour as a 'holiday'. I'm in Finland. We need to learn a lot from their education system, the best in the world (sic),” he tweeted.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Kejriwal is currently at a hospital in Bengaluru where he underwent a surgery to treat his chronic cough.
