On Wednesday, the Delhi government launched the 'Mission Buniyaad' scheme to improve learning levels of children from classes 3 to 9. Primary education falls within the ambit of the Municipal Corporations of Delhi (MCDs) while the Delhi government is supposed to offer education from classes 6 to 12.
About 'Mission Buniyaad'
The programme, Mission Buniyaad will run from April to June for class 3 to 5 in MCD schools and class 6 to 9 in government schools and children will undergo a reading level assessment based on which they will be enrolled in specialised classes.
Education portfolio holder Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia highlighted that children are unable to read and write fluently.
"It is basically a reflection on the failure of the school system," he said while launching the scheme.
"This situation puts children in a seriously disadvantaged situation to acquire further learning.
And the unfortunate part is that the school system instead of owning its own failure projects it on children and their parents as if it is they who are at total fault," he said.

रविवार शाम
(15-04-2018) आम आदमी पार्टी के कार्यकर्ताओं ने राजधानी दिल्ली में महिला सुरक्षा और कठुआ एवं उन्नाव में बलात्कार के मामलों को लेकर प्रधानमंत्री आवास की तरफ मार्च किया।
इस मौके पर आतिशी मार्लेना ने भीड़ को संबोधित करते हुए कहा कि यह वही मोदी सरकार है जो साल 2014 में एक नारे के साथ आई थी कि बहुत हुआ नारी पर वार, अबकी बार मोदी सरकार। लेकिन आज इनके अपने विधायक इनके अपने कार्यकर्ता बलात्कार जैसी घिनौनी वारदात को अंजाम दे रहे हैं जो बेहद ही शर्मनाक है और BJP सरकार उनके ऊपर कार्रवाई कराने की बजाय उनको बचाने का काम कर रही है।
आम आदमी पार्टी के राष्ट्रीय सचिव पंकज गुप्ता ने मार्च में शामिल हुई भीड़ को संबोधित करते हुए कहा कि आज एक ऐसी सरकार केंद्र में बैठी है जो तानाशाह बन चुकी है। जो पार्टी केंद्र में बैठी है उसी पार्टी के नेता आज हमारी बहन-बेटियों का शोषण कर रहे हैं। हम सभी को मिलकर इस सरकार को सबक सिखाना है और इनकी तानाशाही सत्ता को उखाड़ कर फेंकना है।
बलात्कारियों को फांसी की सज़ा हो: गोपाल राय
आम आदमी पार्टी के दिल्ली प्रदेश संयोजक और वरिष्ठ नेता गोपाल राय ने कार्यकर्ताओं को संबोधित करते हुए कहा कि आज हम प्रधानमंत्री महोदय से यह कहने आए हैं कि आपकी बेटी हमारी बहन स्वाति मालीवाल 3 दिन से अनशन पर बैठी है और आपके कान पर जूं तक नहीं रेंग रही है। यह सरकार आज का तानाशाह बन चुकी है जो जनता की आवाज न सुनती है और न दर्द महसूस करती है। इस शोषणकारी सरकार के ख़िलाफ़ हम इस लड़ाई को यूं ही जारी रखेंगे। आम आदमी पार्टी मांग करती है कि उन्नाव और कछुआ में बलात्कार की वारदातों के गुनहगारों के ख़िलाफ़ सख़्त से सख़्त कार्रवाई की जाए और उन्हें फांसी की सज़ा दिलाई जाए।
आम आदमी पार्टी के राष्ट्रीय प्रवक्ता दिलीप पांडे ने कार्यकर्ताओं की भीड़ को संबोधित करते हुए कहा कि हम सब यहां इकट्ठा हुए हैं तो हम सब का एक छोटा सा स्वार्थ है, हम सबका स्वार्थ यह है कि हमारी बेटी, हमारी बहन जब घर से निकले तो अपने आप को सुरक्षित महसूस कर सके, ऐसा ना हो कि वह घर से निकलते हुए डरे। हम एक ऐसा समाज चाहते हैं जहां हमारी बहन- बेटियां घर से बाहर निकलने वक्त अपने आप को सुरक्षित महसूस करें लेकिन यह तय है कि वर्तमान भाजपा सरकार के समय यह मुमकिन नजर नहीं आता है। हम सब मिलकर इस भाजपा की तानाशाह सरकार को हटाएंगे जो हमारी बहन बेटियों की ना तो सुरक्षा कर पाती है बल्कि उलटा उनका शोषण भी करती है।

Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chairperson Swati Maliwal on Sunday ended her hunger strike after President Ram Nath Kovind promulgated an ordinance to give stringent punishment, including death penalty, for those convicted of raping girls below 12 years.
She has been on strike for the last 10 days at Rajghat here.
As she congratulated the people for the ordinance, Ms. Maliwal noted that very few protests had achieved so much in such less time, and termed the government’s decision a “historic victory” for independent India.
According to the Criminal Law (Amendment) Ordinance 2018, new fast-track courts will be set up to deal with rape cases and special forensic kits will be provided to all police stations and hospitals in the long run.
The ordinance stipulates stringent punishment for perpetrators of rape, particularly of girls below 12 and 16 years. Death sentence has been provided for rapists of girls under 12 years, officials said while quoting the ordinance.
The minimum punishment in case of rape of women has been increased from rigorous imprisonment of seven years to 10 years, extendable to life imprisonment, they said.
In case of rape of a girl under 16 years, the minimum punishment has been increased from 10 to 20 years, extendable to life imprisonment.
The punishment for gangrape of a girl below 16 years will invariably be imprisonment for the rest of life, the officials said.
Stringent punishment for rape of a girl under 12 years has been provided with the minimum jail term being 20 years which may go up to life in prison or death sentence, they added.
Ending her fast, Ms. Maliwal said, “Every day children aged three, four or six years are getting raped in a brutal manner. I wrote letters and issued notices. I even submitted 5.5 lakh letters written by citizens to the prime minister, but in vain.

“After which, I decided to sit on a hunger strike. There was no strategy, but gradually people joined the movement across the country. It gained such a momentum that the prime minister after returning to India had to make an amendment in the law.
I congratulate the people of India for this victory,” she said.
The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief had been demanding death penalty for rape of minors and setting up of fast-track courts across the country to try rape cases, along with other demands.

Amid a nationwide outrage over cases of sexual assault on girls and women at Kathua in Jammu and Kashmir, Surat in Gujarat and Unnao in Uttar Pradesh, the Union cabinet had on Saturday approved the ordinance to provide stringent punishment, including death penalty, for those convicted of raping girls below the age of 12 years.
Ms. Maliwal had, on Saturday, written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi mentioning her six demands, including the passage of the ordinance, recruitment of police personnel as per the United Nations standards and fixing accountability of the police force.

She had also sought that files relating to the recruitment of 14,000 police personnel — approved by the Union home ministry but pending with the finance ministry — be cleared.
Ms. Maliwal also put forth her demand for constitution of a high-level committee, comprising Delhi chief minister, home minister and Lieutenant Governor to review safety of women in the national capital.

Sacking Atishi Marlena is aimed at derailing Delhi's education revolution 
The BJP-led Central government sacked Atishi Marlena from her position as Advisor to Delhis Education Minister Manish Sisodia on 17 April, in what was seen as a direct assault on the very essence of AAP's governance model. Delhi's Education reforms have been spearheaded by both Dy CM Manish Sisodia and Atishi Marlena and have found recognition nationally and internationally. The shocking decision by the Modi government was unanimously condemned by people across party lines.
Dy CM Sisodia lashed out at the BJP in a press conference calling this an attempt at derailing the excellent work being done by the AAP towards transforming government schools of Delhi. Atishi Marlena, who has a Masters in Education from Oxford University and was a Rhodes scholar, was working in this capacity for a token salary of Re 1 per month.
She had been the key driver of several key initiatives of the Delhi government.
In his letter to the Prime Minister, education minister Manish Sisodia exhorted the central government to not extend political vendetta to the children of Delhi. Read the full letter here.

The sacking of Atishi Marlena is testimony to the threat that AAP's model of people centric governance poses to the ruling party at the Centre. It is evidence of the ruling party not having even an iota of interest in the education of the children of Delhi. The staunchest of critics of the Aam Aadmi Party have demanded that Atishi be reinstated with immediate effect.
Lend your voice to the petition to reinstate Atishi Marlena as Advisor to Education Minister.
