Raising the issue during Zero Hour, BJP member Radha Mohan Agarwal said as per the RTE guidelines by the Centre, 25 percent seats would be reserved for children from poor and underprivileged sections.
However, under its guidelines the UP government has exempted public schools, he alleged.
Citing the example of Gorakhpur, he said only 63 such students got admission in public schools in the city last year.
He demanded stern action against officials who prepared the guidelines.
BJP Legislature party leader Suresh Khanna alleged the government was not sensitive to poor and does not want their children to study in good schools.
The BJP members later walked out of the House.
