New Delhi, 28th August 2022:Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal inaugurated the “Shaheed Bhagat Singh Armed Forces Preparatory School” in Jharoda Kalan on Saturday. On this occasion, Kejriwal said, ”Along with studies, four years of preparation will also be made for the children to be recruited in NDA and other armed forces.”
The Chief Minister said, ”The school has been named after Shaheed Bhagat Singh so that every child should be inspired. At the age of 23, that young man (Bhagat Singh) sacrificed himself, he was hanged. Sometimes we don’t realize how we got freedom. How many people sacrificed their lives and how did they fight for freedom.” The school has been named after Shaheed-e-Azam Bhagat Singh so that when every child leaves the school, they carry the spirit of dying for the country.
 The Chief Minister also said, ”There should be no distinction between the poor and the rich in the school and children will be given free education here. We thought two years ago that there is no Sainik School in Delhi. We started preparing for it a year ago.  At that time we did not expect that the school would be ready within a year.”
18,000 children had applied for admission to the school. Of those who have got admission here, 80 to 90% of the children have come from government schools. The rest are children from private schools. Addressing the children and parents, the CM said, ”I passed out from IIT Kharagpur in 1989. When I was in IIT, our fees used to be Rs 30 per month. There were great labs, and other facilities were found there. Later many children settled abroad. If everyone went abroad, who would work for the country?
