AAP questions Punjab govt’s motive behind regularisation move
Aam Aadmi Party on Sunday questioned Punjab government’s motive behind its move to regularise 27,000 contractual employees, saying had the SAD-BJP coalition been serious on the issue they would not have waited for the state polls to approach.
The relatively new political outfit said the reported move by the SAD-BJP government to call a special assembly session on Monday was nothing more than a “stage-managed” decision to placate the agitating contractual and temporary employees.
AAP, Punjab Convener, Gurpreet Singh Ghuggi said if the government of Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal was indeed serious about the issue it would have regularised the employees long ago anytime during its 10-year rule in Punjab. “(Parkash and Sukhbir) have taken the decision after being scared by various poll surveys that they will not be able to form the government in Punjab in 2017,” he said.
