Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia met the team from the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Ahmedabad to discuss how to further improve the ongoing leadership development program for the Delhi government's school principals. 

The Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Ahmedabad, and Delhi government had earlier collaborated to train principals of schools so as to capacitate them to function better as heads of educational institutions.  All principals will undergo an intensive course, which will be administered by IIM-Ahmedabad and the sessions will be conducted at the institute’s Right to Education Resource Centre.

Meanwhile, in a bid to draw Prime Minister Narendra Modi's attention to the condition of some schools in Gujarat, Manish Sisodia during a visit, stated that he found that toilets were broken and students did not have any desks. The senior Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader also shared on Twitter pictures from his visit to these schools that showed children sitting on the floor of classrooms. Sisodia had visited two state-run schools in Bhavnagar, the Assembly constituency and hometown of Gujarat Education Minister Jitu Vaghani, last week.

The deputy chief minister's tweet came in response to one by PM Modi in which he stated that he will be visiting the Vidya Samiksha Kendra in Gujarat on Monday.

Replying to a tweet by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Sisodia said, "You may not see from the modern center of Vidya Samiksha Kendra the picture of these schools, where there is no desk to sit, there are cobwebs like those in closed junkyards, toilets are broken... I have personally seen such schools in the constituency of the education minister of Gujarat."
