Chandigarh, Jan 29 : The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leadership has held the erstwhile SAD-BJP alliance and the ruling Congress Governments in Punjab for derailing the education system in the state.
In a statement here on Tuesday, Core Committee chairman and MLA Principal Budh Ram and Deputy LoP Sarabjit Kaur Manuke said the subsequent governments ruling the state had been responsible for the sorry state of affairs in the education system in the state. He said today a student does not feel like going to government run school to pursue education for many reasons than one.
Budh Ram alleged that due to ill-conceived policies of the governments holding the fort from time to time had virtually derailed the system. He said that no recruitments were made in government colleges since 1996. The figures available reveal that in 49 government colleges in Punjab only 512 college teachers as against total available posts of 1872 were working against permanent posts. The remaining posts had not been filled since. This has told upon the quality of education being imparted in these temples of learning. (UNI)
