NEW DELHI: Bollywood actor Shri Rajpal Yadav called on the Chief Minister of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal, at the Delhi Secretariat. He congratulated the Chief Minister for the turnaround of the government school and education in Delhi. He also praised the health care system of the Delhi Government.

“I am amazed to see the government schools of Delhi; I have never seen such government schools in my life. They are fit to give private schools a run for their money. This is real development; you are making the foundation of development strong. It was so nice to see such state of the art classrooms as well as swimming pools in government schools,” said Shri Rajpal.

The Chief Minister further shared with the actor the steps were taken by the government in the education sector and the results achieved. Mr. Rajpal visited some Delhi Government schools on Tuesday with the Deputy Chief Minister and had interacted with the students of the school.

The Chief Minister also shared with him the newly introduced three-tier system for healthcare (Mohalla Clinics, Polyclinics and Big Hospitals). Apart from this the free medicine, tests and surgery scheme of the Delhi Government was also told to him.

Later, the Bollywood actor also visited the Peeragarhi camp Mohalla Clinic and the Polyclinic in Paschim Vihar. He saw the facilities at the Mohalla Clinic and Polyclinic and understood the concept of the three-tier healthcare system of Delhi Government.

Reacting after visiting the clinics, Shri Rajpal said, “Next to god is health and with such wonderful health facilities residents of Delhi very lucky. Education & Health are two basic things for the development of any society. Delhi is so lucky to have a government which has made world-class facilities in both sectors available for everyone – be it rich or poor. The Mohalla Clinic & Polyclinic must be emulated all over India. This is required even more in the villages where 85% of India resides. I congratulate the Chief Minister and Health Minister of Delhi to have set up such government schools and health facilities in Delhi”.
