Did not send anyone: Kerala minister, AAP MLA spar over education model
Kerala General Education Minister V Sivankutty on Sunday clarified that the state government did not send any officials to Delhi to learn about how schools are managed by the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government.
The clarification was issued after AAP MLA Atishi tweeted about a visit of officials from Kerala to a school in Kalkaji which raised many eyebrows.
Kerala’s Dept of Education has not sent anyone to learn about the ‘Delhi Model’. At the same time, all assistance was provided to officials who had visited from Delhi to study the ‘Kerala Model’ last month. We would like to know which ‘officials’ were welcomed by the AAP MLA. https://t.co/Lgh6nM7yL9

“It was wonderful to host officials from Kerala at one of our schools in Kalkaji. They were keen to understand and implement our education model in their state,” Atishi, who is also a member of the Political Affairs Committee of AAP, said.
Kerala minister then clarified that it had not sent anyone to learn about the ‘Delhi Model’. He further said all assistance was provided to officials who had visited from Delhi to study the ‘Kerala Model’ last month.
He also sought to know which ‘officials’ were welcomed by the AAP MLA. Atishi later replied with the names of the officials who visited the school. However, it was revealed that they were not state government officials but rather part of CBSE schools.
