Pakistani girl gets admission in Delhi school, Sushma seeks to take credit

Thanking Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia for his ‘kind gesture’, Swaraj tweeted his letter to the director of Delhi’s education department, directing him to take the necessary steps.

pakistaniMadhu had earlier approached Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and also met Swaraj, seeking help in the matter.

In the past two years, she hadn’t been able to secure admission in any school as she has lost some of the required documents like birth and school-leaving certificate.

Sisodia, however, ensured that the ground rules are relaxed in this case on humanitarian grounds.

“She wants to study and on humanitarian grounds, it is my considered opinion that we need to walk extra mile to accommodate her desire to pursue study in our school,” Sisodia said giving instruction to the director of education department.

According to reports, Madhu had come to India with her mother, siblings, her uncle and cousins two years ago after they fled religious persecution in Pakistan’s Punjab province.
