On Tuesday, the First Lady is scheduled to visit a Delhi government school in the morning for her ‘Be Best’ initiative. For her school visit, Kejriwal and Sisodia, who is also the city’s education minister, were to welcome Melania Trump at the school and brief her about the Happiness Curriculum being imparted to the students.
However, officials in the Delhi government said that the CM’s office was informed on Saturday morning that the names of Kejriwal and Sisodia were dropped from the list attendees in the school event.
“It is bizarre that not even the city’s education minister could make it to the guest list, even as the entire school event will be focussed on the Happiness Curriculum launched by Delhi government in its schools in 2018. We are yet to be told who will explain the nuances of the course to the First Lady. We have learnt that the names of the CM and deputy CM were dropped on the Central government’s pressure,” a senior government official said on condition of anonymity.
