Arvind Kejriwal said it was not expected that such excellent results would be achieved
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday met the students of the Armed Forces Preparatory School who cleared the National Defence Academy exams this year.
After 32 students from the batch of 76 from the Delhi government's school cleared the NDA written exam, Arvind Kejriwal called it a miracle and said that it was not expected that such excellent results would be achieved in the very first year of the school's inception.
Taking to X (former Twitter), Arvind Kejriwal said, "A year ago, we started Armed Forces Preparatory School to prepare the children of Delhi for the army. Although we had provided the best facilities in the school, it was not expected that such excellent results would be achieved in the very first year. 76 children of the first batch appeared for the written examination of NDA - 32 passed."
"Looks like a miracle today I had invited these children to my house for tea. My eyes became moist with joy after meeting them. Our children are becoming good, responsible, and patriotic citizens. What confidence do the children have, the passion to do something for the country," he further added.
32 students including 9 girls from Delhi Government's Shaheed Bhagat Singh Armed Forces Preparatory School (AFPS) have cleared the National Defence Academy (NDA) written exam conducted by the Union Public Service Commission.
Earlier, Education Minister Atishi visited the AFPS Jharoda Kalan campus on Wednesday and congratulated students for their success. She further motivated the students to put in double the efforts for clearing SSB now.
Appreciating the efforts of students, Education Minister Atishi said, "The vision of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal behind starting AFPS seems to be getting fulfilled within a year. He started the school to provide opportunities to children from underprivileged backgrounds to become military officers and serve the nation. It's a tremendous achievement that out of our 76 students who took the exam, of which 32 students cleared the written exam."
