Jalandhar, December 8
To protest against the non-regularisation of teachers even after 28 days of government’s assurance to regularise 36,000 teachers, members of the Sarv Sikhiya Abhiyan and Mid Day Meal Office Employees Association held a protest against the state government.
SSA employees on Wednesday questioned the state government saying they were having trouble finding the teachers the government claims to have regularised.
Mocking the state government in their protest, teachers launched a new ‘scheme’ for the government - the poster of of which read “36,000 Mulazam Labbho, Inam Pao” (Find 36,000 employees, get awarded). Union leaders said the Congress government had declared that it will regularise 36,000 contractual employees and hoardings have also been put up across the state with the same claim. But in reality it is yet to be done. Therefore, employees have started a scheme as per which the party workers who will be successful in finding the 36,000 regularised employees will be rewarded with Rs 1,000 from the regularised employee.
A poster was also released in this regard. Leaders said in a recent meeting, Education Minister Pargat Singh had told them their demands were genuine decisions regarding were taken in a November 29 meet with the CM following which the CM was to issue direction to the finance department on the issue.
They said the CM Channi, while passing a new act in the Vidhan Sabha on November 11, had announced the regularisation of 36,000 contractual employees. But even after 28 days, the act had not been sent to the departments concerned. They said whenever employees meet department officials, they are told that they can start proceedings only after getting state government notification.
Sarv Sikhiya Abhiyan and Mid Day Meal Office Employees Association leaders Shobhit Bhagat, Gagan Sial, Rajiv Sharma, Sukhraj, Gagan Sharma said just like parties seek votes by going from home to home, the unions members will go to people’s doorsteps to expose the false assurances and promises made by the government.
