The Vidarbha unit of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), has demanded effective implementation of Right to Education (RTE) in the State.
A delegation led by AAP Vidarbha Convenor Dr Devendra Wankhede on Monday met Deputy Director; Education Satish Mendhe and submitted a memorandum of demands to him. The delegation pointed out that RTE is being implemented since last ten years. However, the government and the administration are adopting dilly dallying tactics in its implementation.
Admission process of the English medium schools has already begun but 25 per cent of RTE admissions are still making rounds of government offices. As a result, the poor and downtrodden are deprived of the law, the AAP workers alleged and urged to take necessary steps to ensure its maximum benefit reaches to the needy.
