‘What education revolution will you bring on land which is cradle of civilisation’

Education Minister Pargat Singh today dared Delhi Chief Minister Arvinder Kejariwal to explain that which education revolution he intends to bring on this sacred land which has been ‘cradle of civilisation’ since ages and have taught the masses how to read and write.

The Minister said that it is another cheap gimmick by the ‘rumour monger’ Kejriwal, who is not even aware of basic topography of Punjab. He said that Kejriwal probably forgot about the fact that he is trying to mislead people on same land where Vedas, Upanishads and others were written long before when people knew how to read and write.

Pargat Singh said that what revolution can Delhi Chief Minister Bring in Punjab where Bani of great Gurus imbibed in Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji is already guiding destiny of people by showing them way of life.
