Sisodia calls meeting of BJP MLAs over Guest Teachers Bill
New Delhi: Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Friday said he had called a meeting of all four BJP MLAs in Delhi to discuss a Bill meant to regularize guest teachers.
Sisodia tweeted that he had sent out the invitations to the BJP leader in the House, Vijender Gupta, and his three colleagues to discuss the Guest Teachers Regularisation Bill at 6 p.m.
On Wednesday, the Delhi Cabinet had approved the Bill to make 15,000 guest teachers in government schools permanent. It is to be taken up at a special session of the Delhi Assembly on October 4.
But the Delhi High Court on Wednesday ordered status quo till October 11, the next day of hearing on a petition filed on the teachers' appointment.
A Delhi government official said that the Assembly will discuss whether the court order will affect the Bill's implementation.
The Bhratiya Janata Party is the only opposition in the 70-member Delhi Assembly where the Aam Aadmi Party has an overwhelming majority.
