Prithvi Reddy further stated that they question the state government about the pathetic conditions of government Kannada medium schools in Karnataka.

"We will raise questions on why the ruling BJP is betraying poor children of the state." Prithvi Reddy further stated that he is wondering why the state government is so reserved about Kannada medium schools for children.

The post by the AAP has been tagged to the handle of Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai.

The AAP has taken up the issue of building schools following media reports bringing to light that more than 50 junior primary schools, 50 plus Higher Primary schools, located in Tiptur taluk, which falls in the constituency of Education Minister B.C. Nagesh, are in bad shape and require repairing work.
