Cong promises to regularise temporary MCD staff

Wednesday, 30 November 2022 | SR | New Delhi

Delhi Congress on Tuesday promised to regularize all temporary employees in the MCD including daily wagers and end outsourcing jobs to contractors within six months if voted in power.

The party, while releasing its vision document for the MCD, said the ad hoc job culture in the MCD had most adversely affected the Dalit community, particularly the sanitation workers. The party leaders said that it will empower the Dalits financially by ensuring them permanent jobs, which the BJP had failed to do during its 15-year rule in the corporation by treating the dalit workers shabbily, despite big contribution by them.

He said that funds for the welfare schemes and guarantees to the dalit community would be allocated in the next budget of the MCD after the elections. He said that BJP did not spend the funds meant for the welfare of Dalits, and as a result, nearly Rs 2500 crore remained unspent. Delhi Congress chief Anil Kumar said that if voted in power his party will ensure social justice, financial justice, religious justice and cultural justice to dalits.

He said that Congress was confident to elect its mayor in the MCD this time to realize its target of ‘Daliton Ke Sath Nyay Wali Dilli, Sheila Dikshit Wali Dilli’. “The Congress government had implemented many welfare schemes for the uplift of Dalits, to ensure a secure future for their children.

 but CM Kejriwal played with sentiments of dalits by borrowing ‘Jhaadu’ (broom) as  symbol of the AAP only to betray the unsuspecting Dalits,” said Kumar. He said that Kejriwal was also responsible for pile up of garbage across Delhi as he did not release funds to pay wages of sanitation workers, who had too often strike work to get their backwages.
