Sisodia made the comments at an event at Thyagraj Stadium to celebrate the completion of an internship training programme of over 5,000 Delhi government school students.

“Abdul Kalam dreamt that school education should give vocational proficiency to students, he shared it with us when we asked him for guidance on school education. I am happy to say that we are moving towards realising his dream.

“Let’s prepare to get such internships for all 83,000 vocational students, I appeal to everyone from industry to help us do that,” he said.
