Govt employees of Haryana unhappy with BJP Government

Chandigarh Oct 19, 2019 Haryana has witnessed numerous demonstrations in the last five years. This was probably the period of most number of protests in the government of any state. Whereas in the 2014 elections, Haryana government employees strongly supported the BJP. But this time, out of total 1.18 crore voters in the state, around 4.5 lakh government employees are going to play an important role.

Congress leader Kumari Selja says that state government employees are now looking at Congress. If her party comes into power, we will ensure that government employees get their due. “In our resolution letter, we have already assured the employees that the jobs of contract based guest teachers, computer operators and lab attendants will be confirmed. We have promised to remove the contract system in all government departments. Our party has also promised to provide equal pay and allowances to all the employees just like the Punjab employees. There is also a promise to implement the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission from January 1, 2016. It also includes raising the retirement age to 58 to 60 years like central employees.”

It is noteworthy that so far more than 10 lakh calls have been received on the free calling number 93553-33011, associated with the Congress resolution letter. A total of 1,45,693 lakh people have contacted for information related to government employees only.

The political equations have changed in the state, in such a situation, if these employees decide to teach BJP a lesson, then Congress may have an upper hand. The state has elections for 90 assembly seats on October 21, while the counting will be done on 24 October.

Meanwhile, All India Congress Committee spokesman Pawan Kheda issued a statement today saying that in the last five years, the Khattar government has broken all records of scams. Bus Tender Scam, Post Metric Scholarship Scam, Recruitment Scam, Camera Scam, Tiles Scam, Mining Scam, Electricity Meter Purchase Scam, Overloading Scam, GST Scam, Drug Scam, Galvanum Sheet Scam, Patanjali Land Scam etc. were already there, and now a new land scam has surfaced.

He said that on January 4, 2019, a 4000 square meter plot had been exchanged in Sector 30, Gurugram in the name of BJP by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, for which no advertisement was issued. The plot was given to BJP in 2016 in lieu of the allotted institutional plot in Sector 41, Gurugram. Total value of the plot allotted at sector 41 was Rs 10 crore 20 lakh. But keeping all the rules in mind, Chief Minister Khattar gave permission to change the commercial site in Sector 30 by his signature, which is estimated to be around Rs 72 crore.

According to the law, prior approval is required for the transfer of the plot, as shown by DC Gurugram’s own recommendation as well. According to the rules of transfer of plot by HUDA (HSVP), dated 18.2.2013, the category of the plot cannot be changed under any circumstances, as has happened in this case.
