Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday got emotional at the inauguration of an educational institution, as he remembered former education minister Manish Sisodia and his work in the area of education. The CM was speaking at the inauguration event of School of Specialised Excellence, Dariyapur village of outer Delhi's Bawana.
Sisodia was arrested in the CBI case on February 26 in connection with its probe into the excise policy after which he resigned as deputy chief minister of Delhi. The Delhi High Court has also refused to grant him interim bail in a money laundering case linked to the alleged excise policy scam, observing that he is facing "extremely serious" allegations and there is a possibility of "influencing the witnesses".
"BJP has put him in jail by filing false cases. If Manish ji had not built good schools, they would not have put him in jail. They want to end the education revolution but we will not let the education revolution end," said Kejriwal.
In the video, Kejriwal was seen almost crying while talking about Sisodia's contribution to Delhi's education sector. "This was Manishji's dream. He wanted to provide good education to all the kids in the national capital."
"Students of Delhi government schools are excelling in academics. They are even clearing competitive exams and becoming doctors, engineers, and police officers. There is one man behind this education transformation and he is Manish Sisodia,"
