Aam Aadmi Party on Sunday sought to know if BJP-ruled states would allot the maximum share of funds on education, health and employment generation in their budgets, a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi stressed on the need for a “Garib Kalyan” agenda by focussing on these areas.

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia asked the Prime Minister to abstain from “creating obstacles” for the Delhi government and told him to “land on the ground for few days”.

His reaction on Twitter came after Modi on Saturday asked BJP chief ministers to work in “mission mode” to make their states a model for execution of his government’s schemes, mostly aimed at benefiting the poor, with the party forming a committee to finalise a “garib kalyan agenda”.

“Even Modiji has admitted that governance means ensuring education, health and employment. If padhai-likhai-dabai (sic) is not another rhetoric then will BJP-ruled states spend the maximum share of budgets in education and health?

“Will mohalla clinics and polyclinics come up in BJP-ruled states too? Will people get free treatment? I hope the PM does not create obstacles on issues related to education, health and employment in the capital,” Sisodia said in a series of tweets.

Sisodia, who holds the Education portfolio as well, also asked whether government schools will be made better than private schools in BJP-ruled states.

“Will there be a leash on private schools there?,” he questioned.
