A day after announcing its decision to contest the 2022 UP Assembly polls, the AAP Wednesday challenged the Yogi Adityanath government to a debate on education, considered the party’s strongest pillar in delivery of governance in the national capital.

Addressing a press conference, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who holds the education portfolio in Delhi, announced he will visit Uttar Pradesh state capital Lucknow on December 22 to showcase the “Delhi model of education”.

UP Education Minister Satish Dwivedi had on Tuesday invited Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his Sisodia to visit government schools in the state, pointing out the “folly” of comparing his state, which has over 1.59 lakh government schools, with Delhi that has 1,024 state government-run schools.

“I request the UP government to share a list of 10 schools in UP villages which the BJP government has improved in the past four years,” Sisodia said.

The Delhi Education Minister claimed there are schools in UP that look like “make-shift stables with animals inside”.
