New Delhi: Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Monday introduced a bill for Delhi Teachers University on the first day of the two-day session of the Delhi Assembly. Sisodia, who also holds the education portfolio, said for the last seven years, historical decisions were taken by the AAP government, including the expenditure of 25 per cent budget in the field of education.

“This is not a romanticism formula. We are doing it considering education as the most fundamental requirement. The credit for the education revolution goes mostly to the teachers,” he said in the House.

The minister had also visited an under-construction campus of the Delhi Teachers University in Bakkarwala on January 1. He had asked officials to expedite the construction work so that the session could be started as soon as possible.
