Ghaziabad, Nov 29 (IANS) Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadami Party (AAP) Thursday demanded the withdrawal of a Delhi government decision to slash the admission quota for poor students from 20 to 15 percent in private schools operating on government land.

Gopal Rai, member of AAP's executive committee, told reporters here that the private schools built on government land in Delhi were minting money by violating the seat allotment conditions.

The Delhi government in 2007 allowed 20 percent reservation for poor students in 395 schools built on government land. However, a notification in 2011 reduced the admission quota for poor students to 15 percent.
