Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday lauded the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)-led Punjab government for making 8,736 school teachers permanent and urged all state governments to take such a step. Kejriwal said the Delhi government had introduced a bill in the assembly to make guest teachers permanent in the national capital, but the Center did not approve it. While tweeting, he wrote that on one hand other governments across the country are recruiting raw employees by ending permanent government jobs, while the Punjab government has started making raw ones.

Cut in government jobs in the country: Kejriwal

Kejriwal said, at a time when government jobs are being cut and more temporary employees are being hired, Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann has made permanent the services of 8,736 teachers. This step will set an example for others as well. He emphasized that education has been revolutionized in Delhi through the efforts of guest and permanent teachers.


Urged to regularize hospital staff

The Chief Minister of Delhi further said that the permanent staff of our hospitals have performed extremely well in Delhi hospitals and Mohalla clinics. I urge all the state governments to regularize the services of their temporary employees. On behalf of Aam Aadmi Party, I assure you that wherever our governments are formed, we will make temporary employees permanent.

The decision was taken by the cabinet on Monday

Let us inform that on Monday, the Punjab Cabinet had approved the policy made to regularize the services of contractual, ad-hoc, daily wage earners and temporary teachers who have completed 10 years of service. At the same time, the cabinet had announced to regularize the services of about 9,000 teachers by placing them in a special cadre.
