Regularisation of guest teachers: BJP opposes bill!

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal |PTI

He said it is unfortunate that the fate of Delhi is being decided by a novice Chief Minister who is interested more in creating problems than solving them.

New Delhi, October 5The BJP has condemned the word - "mard ke bache ho samne aao" - used by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in the Assembly House when Leader of Opposition Vijender Gupta said the bill was prepared by officers. "If the guest teachers who are now teaching in our schools were to be replaced with fresh candidates, DoE would suffer quite a setback to our education reform process and we would need to re-start the process from scratch", said Manish Sisodia. He alleged that after being exposed in the guest teachers' case, Kejriwal wanted to complicate the entire case and keep it in litigation, but as a responsible opposition the BJP would not allow him to do so.

The bill, approved by the Delhi cabinet last week, seeks to regularise 15,000 guest teachers in Delhi government schools.

A day earlier, Baijal had objected to the bill being tabled, stating that matters relating to "Services" are beyond the legislative competence of the Delhi assembly and that the proposed legislation was not in accordance with the constitutional scheme of things.

The Nobel prize in Chemistry was awarded to Jacques Dubochet, Joachim Frank, Michael Henderson on Wednesday. This year's prize is 9 million SEK (1.1 million USA dollars), and will be shared by the three laureates.

The Delhi Government however, will call a special session of Delhi assembly to introduce the bill.

He observed: "The foundation of the bill is flawed.One has to go by the rule of law, not rhetoric". The country is run on democracy, not bureaucracy.

The AAP chief's combative speech, something he is known for, comes after a long gap when he remained unusually quiet, even on social media, refraining from attacking the opposition or Prime Minister Narendra Modi. We are Delhi's masters. "Do not take cover behind officials and fire at us", Kejriwal said. "Recruitments and appointments of teachers can not be treated separately", he said.
