The newly-appointed Ministers said they need time to bring changes wherever required

All the six Cabinet Ministers of the Delhi Cabinet took charge of their office on Saturday and also held meetings with their department officials.

While the newly appointed ministers said they need time to bring changes wherever required, most of them laid out their agenda they would be following in the near future.

Speaking to the media after he took charge, Education Minister Manish Sisodia said: “As far as private schools are concerned, our priority would be to ensure quality, rationalise the fee structure and stop donations in the schools. As far as government schools are concerned it would be on the top of our agenda to ensure that all the facilities reach the schools.”

Mr. Sisodia added the State government would further improve on the guidelines issued by the Lieutenant-Governor on nursery admissions.

Transport Minister Saurabh Bhardwaj said his department would review the decision of the Delhi High Court over the Ambedkar Nagar BRT, which the Sheila Dikshit government decided to scrap in the run up to the polls.

“We would review the court decision. We have to assess whether the court ruling is a binding on the government. Any decision on the BRT can be taken only after we know exactly what we can do as legislators,” said Mr. Bhardwaj.

Women and Child Welfare minister Rakhi Birla said her department would go ahead with manifesto of her party of raising a separate Mahila Surksha Bal at the municipal ward level to ensure safety of women. “Each ward would have 25-30 special commandoes,” she said.
