Says proposal pending at Union Home Ministry for 2 yrs.
New Delhi, March 22 (Delhi Crown): Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has written a letter to Union Home Minister Amit Shah seeking the regularisation of 4,500 employees of the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) against the existing vacancies.
“These employees are working in the Regular Muster Roll (RMR) group and are appointed to handle various crucial services in the national capital,” said Kejriwal in his letter.
The CM stated that these RMR employees are waiting for many years for their regularisation against the existing vacancies in NDMC.
He also mentioned in his letter to Shah how these employees had devoted a number of years as temporary employees in NDMC and were “suffering for long” for want of regularisation.
A proposal on regularisation of the employees is pending with the Union Home Ministry for more than two years due to which the employees had recently approached CM Arvind Kejriwal for support. Ahead of the MCD polls, which are due for this year, both the AAP and the BJP are hurling accusations and allegations against each other on various issues, including government employees’ jobs.
Only two days ago, Delhi BJP chief Adesh Gupta had alleged that over 9000 Anganwadi workers were terminated by the Kejriwal government only because they were protesting in front of the CM residence demanding better salaries and regularisation.
The BJP has planned to hold a protest outside the Delhi Assembly on Wednesday (March 23) demanding regularisation of 22,000 Anganwadi Workers and their Sahayaks, Guest Teachers, besides others.
