PTA still in court, Govt promises a policy for ‘outsource employees’

Shimla: Evens a ghost of PTA appointed teaches is still haunting thousands of youth, who have spent over 10 years of their career in the middle of assurance and promises from the political masters and still looking for the regularization from the education department and compel to continue with the service even on the meager remuneration, another bundle of hope and assurance for the thousands of youth is making round in the capital city of the Himachal Pradesh.

Head of the Himachal Pradesh government today assured to formulate a policy for outsourced employees, who were appointed through some private agency to easy the workload of staff starved departments of the state government. It’s noted that all of outsourced employees have been appointed without any prior competitive exam and interview from the department, and any other recruiting agency of the state and union government.

Outsource Employees Federation, today, organized a function at Peterhoff, which was presided by Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh. Veteran leader acknowledged their grievance and promised to look into their demand sympathetically. Singh claimed that “Outsourcing was done for carrying out the policies and programmes of the government for a limited period initially, but it was not fair, to keep them outsourced for rest of their lives.”

Veteran leader, who has even completed over 54 years in active politics, acknowledged not to prolong the period of service of outsourced employees. Citing examples, the Chief Minister claimed that outsourcing of employees was prevalent everywhere, not only in India but other countries too.

The state is slated for poll later this year and such announcement can easily be connected with alluring the important first time voters in the party favour. Singh, in his address, also not forget to mention the achievements of his government.

Targeting opposition, the Chief Minister claimed of forces creating rift between people right from Panchayat upto the state level. He said

“They try to divide the people while nearing elections and also sometimes succeed in their motive, but the people have to understand their modus-operandi and their propaganda”
