Deputy CM Manish Sisodia, in a 3-page letter to PM Narendra Modi, questioned the dismissal of Atishi Marlena who had been advising Delhi government on education reforms.

“The best educational institutions are accessible by only 5% of the population. The rest, mostly the poor, depend on government schools to educate their children. Giving better education to the children of such people is our patriotism,” Sisodia said in the letter addressing the improvement in the standard of education provided by the government.

“The education minister, secretary or education director doesn’t have to be an education expert in our country. In my opinion, this is a reason for poor quality in India’s school education. We appointed Atishi, who is well-educated and experienced, as an advisor for the better future of children of Delhi,” he added.

The deputy CM claimed that despite lack of support in the last three years there has been remarkable development work in the city. He urged the PM to visit any Delhi government school to witness the change.
