I hate AAP and firmly believe that they are one of the dangerous threats to India’s unity. I turned on the TV and found out that all the exit polls are hinting at victory to AAP and Arvind Kejriwal almost certain to become the CM of Delhi, once again. Of course, we’ll know the truth in the next few days; but I’m wondering how did Kejriwal managed to fool the people of Delhi and can he really fulfil the promises he made. I read the manifesto available on their official website and they have promised to open 500 schools in Delhi. Note that they have NOT put any time-frame to fulfil their promise.
Now any decent school with the basic minimum facilities is likely to require about 3-5 acres of land at least, right? So 500 schools will mean they’ll have to find out about 1500 – 2500 acres of land inside the city of Delhi. The AAP is aiming to have a school within 1 km of residence of every child; so they have no option but to find that much space in the city of Delhi. I’m not sure how much it would cost, but it’s likely to be in several hundreds (or thousands) of crores.
Then they have promised to recruit 17,000 teachers who have taken up teaching as a profession out of ‘choice’. Are you kidding me? I’m not a Delhiite! Do you seriously, in your dreams, think that you’re going to find those numbers?
..and finally, what is this, Kejriwal? Who’s up-voting all pro-AAP comments on FirstPost and other media?
