Withdraw Circular Asking Teachers To Attend Arvind Kejriwal's Swearing-In ceremony: BJP MLA To AAP

Vijender Gupta said he would attend Arvind Kejriwal’s oath-taking ceremony at the Ramlila ground.

New Delhi:

Newly-elected BJP MLA Vijender Gupta wrote to AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday requesting him for withdrawing a circular that made it “compulsory” for government school teachers to attend his oath-taking ceremony as Delhi chief minister.

Vijender Gupta, leader of Opposition in the previous assembly, called Friday’s circular “dictatorial” that shattered his belief that Arvind Kejriwal’s focus after coming back to power would be on governance and strengthening democratic ethos.

“By virtue of the order, 15,000 teachers and officials will have to attend the oath ceremony,” Vijender Gupta wrote in his letter to Arvind Kejriwal.

Vijender Gupta, who has been re-elected from Rohini constituency, said he would attend Arvind Kejriwal’s oath-taking ceremony at the Ramlila ground on Sunday.

Reacting to Vijender Gupta’s objection, the vice-chairman of Delhi Dialogue and Development Commission, Jasmine Shah, said teachers and principals were “architects” of Delhi’s transformation in the past five years and they “deserved to be invited” for the swearing-in ceremony.

“When did BJP last think of teachers in at the centre of your ”vikas” (development) model? Never did, never will,” Jasmine Shah tweeted.

The AAP returned to power after winning 62 of the 70 Assembly seats in the Delhi assembly election.

Arvind Kejriwal and his cabinet members will take oath in a grand ceremony on Sunday.
