"This is a very grave situation and it is the responsibility of every government to keep a check on it. Therefore, the Delhi government should also take necessary steps regarding the same," Gaur said, speaking in the Assembly during the budget session.

The Delhi government has laid special emphasis on education in this year's budget.

The education sector was allocated the maximum share of around Rs 10,000 crore.

In his budget speech, Delhi's Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia also outlined his government's strategy on education by focusing on infrastructure, energetic teachers and model syllabus.

Bhavna Gaur also epressed concern over brain-drain in the country.

"The intelligent and efficient work force is migrating out of the country. The Delhi government should work towards stopping brain-drain," the AAP legislator said.
