May 4
Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has said that the government is working towards setting up a state education board. He said, plans are also on to frame syllabi and pedagogy for the Delhi government schools.

He said, there is a need to upgrade the system and modernise it. He also asked for suggestions in this regard.
Speaking on the occasion, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal asked the principals to prepare a blueprint for their respective schools to turn it into a model school and submit it to the Directorate of Education in 15 days. He said, the top 10 principals and teachers will be rewarded with training programmes in foreign schools and they will also be given performance allowance equal to two increments every month for a year

Maha AAP workers resign, back Yadav and Bhushan

May 4,
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) volunteers 350 Unit Maharashtra and leaders from Maharashtra today quit the party in protest against the manner in which Arvind Kejriwal is running the party. Maruti Bhapkar, former state executive committee member of AAP unit in Maharashtra said by resigning, the workers are showing their support for the expelled leaders Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav.
Bhapkar who led the workers in the mass resignation programme which was held in Pune, said they are now with Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan to strengthen their hands to afloat the concept of Swaraj throughout the country in true sense. He added that one can think about the insensitivity of so-called leader Arvind Kejriwal that a farmer died before his eyes and he kept on his political speech.
He informed that besides Pune, volunteers from Mumbai, Nashik, Pimpri-Chinchwad, Aurangabad, Navi Mumbai etc. too came to Pune to quit AAP. Manav Kamble, another former senior leader from AAP, has also joined hands with Bhapkar. Downplaying the resignations, Ravi Srivastava, member of AAP State Executive Committee said a handful of party workers are leaving the party and that comprises no senior leaders or workers. So there won’t be any impact on the party.

CA Minister CORRUPTED Indian Railways, Airlines Cheaper
May04, 2015 (C) Ravinder Singh
Modi government is Flying on The Wings of Corporate, Chartered
Accountants and Touts. Not a single department is working for 1250m
BIGGEST JOKE of any Railways is Premium Train 02053 averages 54kmph
    average Speed is just 54 KMPH cover 1708 kilometers in 31hours and 5
minutes – actually say 33 hours and
    Premium Train Departs at 0.55AM – Past Midnight.
    passengers are charged Rs.6393 against MIXED Fare of around Rs.1400.
    IR will not adopt Honorable Practices – IMPROVE CAPACITY, SERVICE &
SPEED. For Example –
It is most STUPID that Rajdhani Trains have 4 non passenger Coaches (2
Pantry Cars and and 2 Barake Vans) out of 20. Obviously 25% additional
capacity can be added by removing them – IR could introduce 24 Double
Deck Coaches to Double Capacity of Each Rajdhani Expess – Double The
Revenue for little extra cost.
Double Improved Rajdhani and Shatabdi Tains and Quadruple INCOME.
Indian Railways Charge More For AC-3Tier Than Air Fare
It is most shocking Railways Passengers are Charged More Than Airline
fares For Stinking Cramped, AC 3 Tier service. Delhi Mumbai Rajdhani
normal fare is Rs.2060, Rs.1215 for S.Citizen (W) and Children and
Rs.1385 for S.Citizen (M).
It was horrendous when Indian Rail Coach Factories can produce say
10,000 Coaches a year – over 500 Train-sets Railway Minister didn’t
announce a single new train. I visited Railway Exhibition and all Rail
Coach Factories & Workshops displayed DOUBLE DECK Coach models – told
me they are not getting orders.
Way back in 1996 I filed PIL in National Forum that trains that arrive
or depart at midnight hours should have discounted fare and Day Time
Intercity should charge more – to ensure Better Utilization of
Passenger Capacity of Trains.
