“After creating a hype by making a tall promise of installing 15 Lakh CCTV cameras in entire city of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal led AAP government has come up with another plank by proposing to installing CCTV cameras in all government schools.”
AAP has mastered the art of always staying in news and with an aim to grab eyeballs it has been making false claims and unrealistic promises. Aam Aadmi Party manages to grab news space but majority of its promises prove to be political stunt as there is no logical premise behind such claims.
AAP’s yet another political stunt
Education system is India is in very poor state and majority of the government institute in the country are in dire need of basic infrastructure and essential necessities & facilities related to sports, recreational, library etc. in this context, instead of focusing on improving the basic infrastructure of government schools, Kejriwal government has shot another political stunt.
It is yet another unrealistic promise AAP government. It must be noted here that Delhi has 700 schools and if the governments wants to install CCTV cameras in each and every classroom then they would require 70,000 cameras.
If you look at arithmetic behind such massive project, then you would realise that this would perhaps leave Delhi government bankrupt. It is pertinent to note here that Mumbai government has planned to install 6,000 CCTV cameras at an estimated cost of Rs. 950 crores. If we take this as standard for calculating the price and then installation of 70,000 cameras would cost around Rs. 15,000 crores.
Delhi government has still not learnt from it previous mistakes. Public backlash is growing against AAP government for its unfulfilled promises and now they have made another unrealistic promise of installing CCTV cameras in government schools.
