New Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal government has once again landed in a controversy for handing over a contract of Sainik School to an AAP worker.

In a series of tweets, Onlyfact founder Vijay Patel claimed that Sirisha Rao, a volunteer of AAP and close aide of Delhi education minister Manish Sisodia was awarded the contract of Sanik School.

He provided much evidence to prove Sirisha Rao was a close aide of Manish Sisodia.

Patel said, Sirisha once uploaded a video targeting BJP and portraying herself as Abhinandan’s wife. In that video, she was seen advising BJP not to indulge in politics in the name of the army.

However, she was later seen campaigning for Atishi Marlena implying that she has been associated with Aam Aadmi Party for a long time.

Rao was also clicked with Deputy CM Manish Sisodia on February 10, 2021, and just a month later, Sisodia announced that the AAP government will be opening the first Sainik School in Delhi.

Again, on July 15, Sirisha Rao's other picture with Sisodia resurfaced.

Sirisha Rao shared a TOI story in October hinting that she knew that she will get the contract to handle the school well in advance.

A month later, Sirisha Rao created a company Saikorian Education Pvt Ltd and got the contract to handle the first Sainik School.

A video surfaced on Twitter in which KharKhariAmit shared details of how Sirisha Rao was a volunteer of AAP and that she was very close to the core group of the party.

Patel also shared the proof of Sirisha Rao being a ‘Star Campaigner’ of the party in the Lok Sabha elections.

Amit Kharkhari even claimed that Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia gave her the responsibility to draw benefits out of the education department. He claimed that the company doesn’t have any educational or army-related background and still was been given the responsibility to run the school.

A query sent to the AAP spokesperson by NewsDrum remained unanswered.
