New Delhi: Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari on Tuesday launched a scathing attack on CM Arvind Kejriwal for dragging school children into politics. He alleged that the CM had urged the parents of the children either to vote as patriots or be “Modi bhakts”.

Mr Tiwari, along with Leader of the Opposition Vijendra Gupta, held a joint press conference at the Delhi BJP office on the issue of political misuse of students, parents, and teachers by the AAP and refusal of the party leaders and ministers to submit the details of assets and liabilities to the Lokayukta.

Mr Tiwari said that in an internal survey by Mr Kejriwal, the latter has learnt that the parents of the school children, whose data were collected, are going to vote for Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the forthcoming elections. Due to this, he has become frustrated and is pressurising innocent school children to ask their parents to vote against Mr Modi.

He said that during the last four years, not a single school has been opened. However, now Mr Kejriwal is going to lay the foundation of 11,000 classrooms for which no teachers have been appointed.

Previously, the Election Commission had refrai-ned the Kejriwal government from collecting data of the parents of the sch-oolkids. It also ordered to seize the data collected.

The Delhi BJP president said that Mr Kejriwal is suffering from mental illness due to frustration and is attacking the constitutional institutions and thus degrading the dignity of the post of CM.
