Chandigarh: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday drew inspiration from Bollywood blockbuster 'Jawan', mouthing Shah Rukh Khan’s lines to tell people to question leaders before casting their votes as to what they would do for good education and health facilities.

Interacting with newspersons in Amritsar on the sidelines of inauguration of the Punjab’s first 'school of eminence', Kejriwal said that the AAP had made the government schools in Delhi better and now the government schools of Punjab were also being upgraded and these were becoming better than private schools here.

Kejriwal quotes SRK's Jawan dialogue

Kejriwal referred to the dialogue of Shah Rukh Khan in which he (SRK) was speaking against voting in the name of religion or caste and asking to ask leaders at the time of elections, what would they do for the education of their children….?

"Today, even after 75 years of Independence, it was only the Aam Aadmi Party which asked people for votes in the name of good education and good health facilities," he added, lauding the efforts of Mann to work on these lines.

Speaking on the occasion, Mann said that the guarantee of good education was one of the AAP’s biggest electoral guarantees and that now its results had started emerging.

The AAP government plans to have 116 such schools across Punjab and develop them as centres of excellence for the students of Classes IX to XII.
