Kejriwal takes a swipe at Modi
NEW DELHI: In a subtle swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday cautioned his deputy Manish Sisodia, who inaugurated a newly constructed college building, to "be prepared" to face the CBI any moment.
"Manish, be prepared. Modi ji will either send CBI against you or declare that u did not have power to construct it (the college building)," Kejriwal tweeted.
Sisodia, who also holds the portfolio of Education Minister, on Wednesday inaugurated the newly constructed building of Deen Dayal Upadhyay college in Dwarka in west Delhi along with Public Works Department (PWD) Minister Satyendar Jain.
While inaugurating the building Sisodia praised the efforts of PWD engineers for constructing a remarkable building.
"They (Centre) kept troubling us, we kept working. The newly constructed building is indeed splendid. Congratulations to the PWD engineers," Sisodia said.
He said that every year over 2.5 lakh students pass out from Class 12 but of them only 1.25 lakh could get admission in higher and technical education colleges of Delhi University, IP University and others.
"I appeal the DU vice chancellor and the college principals to come to us with a plan of higher and technical education for the rest 1.25 lakh students, we will provide you all the resources needed," Sisodia said.
