CM Arvind Kejriwal said that the children of poor people studying in government schools of Delhi are now moving forward. I always used to say that if we have to remove poverty from our country, then by giving equal and good education to all children within a generation, we can remove poverty from our country.
If we give all our children, whether it is born in a rich home or a child born in a poor home, if we give good education to all children, then poverty will be removed within a generation. It has been 70 years since our country became independent and till today we are struggling with poverty. If we have to overcome the poverty of our country in a generation, then children will have to be given a good education.
