On Sunday, Sisodia had released a list of 250 schools in Delhi that he said were transformed by the AAP government in five years and urged the Punjab government to do the same. "We have shared a list of 250 schools so that comparison can be done between Delhi's education model and Punjab's education model. It has been 24 hours but Punjab Education Minister Pargat Singh has not responded... I now request Punjab Chief Minister Channi to share the list so that people of the state also get to know," Sisodia said in a briefing.

Sisodia alleged that no work had been done by the Congress-led government in the field of education in Punjab. On Thursday, Sisodia had invited Singh for a public debate on the education models of the two governments. He had also proposed a joint visit to 10 government schools each in Punjab and Delhi.

"I'd like to invite Education Minister of Punjab Pargat Singh Official to jointly visit 10 Delhi government schools which we have reformed in the last five years and 10 Punjab govt schools which his government has reformed in five years," Sisodia said. "Then let's have a public debate on the education models of Delhi and Punjab," he said on Twitter.
