The Chief Minister of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal seems to be very busy in finding out the solution to solve the problem which he had created himself a year ago. The Muffler man had shown so many dreams to the contractual NRHM employees and despite completing a year in Delhi, Kejriwal’s government has achieved nothing so far in this regard.
As per the information received, there are 3500 doctors, nurses, midwives, data entry operators and laboratory staff working on contract basis in the capital under the NRHM.
The contractual staff under the NRHM alleged that the ruling regime of AAP in Delhi has been doing nothing for them as they have submitted a lot of memorandums to the concerned department of Kejriwal’s government.
A demand of equal pay along with other benefits along with the demand of regularisation of their jobs has been raised so many times and when AAP had been campaigning for the polls, the point was the centre state of the party’s agenda.
The government has completed one year in Delhi but still the contractual workers are on contract only. They are waiting for the notification of the government but no message has been sent by the concerned department in Delhi.
Even the the AAP government has not releasing their salaries on time as the salaries are often delayed. As per the information, the centre and state together share a sum of 75 % and 25 % for the payment of salaries. An official in the concerned department said that the centre released its share on time but the state government delays the payment of its 25% share.
NRHM contractual staff to start a signature campaign
The contractual staff of NRHM has decided to launch a signature campaign against the ruling regime of AAP and moreover, the employees will also urge the people to support them in the cause. Another signature campaign would be started in the city for the regularisation of the staff.
A NRHM contractual employee on anonymity basis told that the government had promised them to regularise their posts and they would get the equal salaries along with the benefits. Kejriwal has played up with the emotions of the contractual employees of the city for winning votes only.
The strategy for a big movement would be planned against the AAP by these contractual staff workers. After the signature campaign, a big movement would be launched against the Muffler man’s government.
A massive protest was also launched against the AAP government by these workers in June 2015 in front of the residence of Chief Minister of Delhi. At that time, the workers had suspended the work for more than 10 days in the city.
