Disputes, if any, subject to jurisdiction in New Delhi

New Delhi: Delhi BJP leaders including its president Manoj Tiwari Thursday visited a government school in east Delhi’s Trilokpuri where a student was injured after a ceiling fan fell on his head in the classroom.

Tiwari and other BJP leaders including Leader of Opposition in Delhi Assembly Vijender Gupta also visited the inured boy admitted at GTB hospital.

The uncle of the injured student has alleged that no teacher or the principal of the school accompanied the 14-year-old boy to the hospital after the incident.

“Falling off the ceiling fan indicates serious negligence. The accident could have injured other students as well,” Tiwari said after visiting the school.

“Apart from the cost of construction, it is also questionable whether the quality of the construction was up to the standard. It appears that the quality of the construction- right from the door to the ceiling- is substandard and as a result, the ceiling fan fell upon the student injuring him seriously,” he said.

Sisodia talks about the construction of world classrooms in Delhi government schools but there was nothing here which was different from other normal schools, he said.

Gupta said the accident causing injury to the student exposed tall claims of Kejriwal government in the field of school education.

Earlier Thursday, the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) also issued a notice to the Delhi government in connection with an injury suffered by the student when a ceiling fan fell on his head.

The BJP and AAP are involved in a bitter war over Delhi government schools, with the saffron party alleging a “scam” of Rs 2000 crore in construction of classrooms.

The BJP has filed a complaint with Delhi Lokayukta seeking a probe.

On the other hand, Deputy Chief Minister and in charge of Education department Manish Sisodia has sent defamation notices to Tiwari and other BJP leaders over their allegations of “scam” in construction of classrooms.
