Schools in shambles: Manish Sisodia orders suspension of guilty, warns others

New Delhi: Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who inspected several schools in the city on Friday, was dismayed when he found some in total chaos.

Shocked by the lackadaisical approach of some schools' administration, Sisodia immediately ordered suspension of Northwest Delhi Deputy Director of Education and education officer and also ordered termination of principal of Govt Boys School (Alipur).

“Visited school today, found it in horrific condition; school filthy, classes disorderly. Deputy Director Education hadn’t visited school in 5 years. How can we allow such an officer to remain in job? Teachers’ cars were parked in empty classrooms and children sitting in broken rooms. This is unacceptable. School was filthy, rooms locked, children stuffed into hall – is this how a Principal runs a school?,” said Sisodia.

"Let this be a clear message for all: Govt will not tolerate any officials who put the future of our children at stake," he added.
