“Of these schools, some of them were very dirty. We have decided to not give increment to these principals for two years. I had given all schools a deadline to clean the premises. I even asked them to hire labour to do that,” a Hindustan Times report quoted Sisodia saying.  

The  minister also expressed the government’s plans of developing an app through which people can report about the presence of garbage in school premises to the authorities.
