Aam Aadmi Party leader and Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Saturday alleged that a “secret” friendship between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh has formed. This came after Punjab was ranked number one in the Performance Grading Index (PGI) 2019-20 by the central government.
“Captain (Amarinder Singh) has got the blessings of Modiji. Delhi’s schools have been ranked much below. Nearly 800 government schools in Punjab have been shut down in the last five years and many schools have been handed over to private entities but Punjab has been ranked on the top,” Sisodia alleged.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is an opposition in the Congress-governed Punjab where Assembly polls are scheduled for the next year. Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janta Party is also another opposition party in Punjab.
Sisodia has alleged that Punjab’s government schools have poor educational facilities for students and parents prefer to send their children to private schools. “Maybe later, the government might release a report saying Punjab’s hospitals are best. There is a secret friendship between Modiji and Captain,” Sisodia said.
