The Haryana unit of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) flayed the state government for declaring holiday for all schools on Thursday and directing all education department employees to attend `Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ rally of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

In a statement issued here on Wednesday, AAP state chief spokesperson Rajeev Godara said that it was an irony that the BJP government had declared holiday for all schools and directed teachers and others to attend Modi’s rally aimed at espousal of girl child’s education.

Godara said that the BJP government appeared to be in a doubt about the attendance at the rally and that seemed to be behind this directive to teachers to attend it.

He alleged that the state government appeared to be only concerned about the attendance of the teachers at the rally and not at all about the studies of the students.
