Restore bus marshalls’ jobs, AAP urges LG

Wednesday, 10 July 2024 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

AAP on Tuesday has appealed to the Lieutenant Governor Vinai Kumar Saxena to restore the jobs of bus marshals sitting on the roads for months on humanitarian grounds

Senior AAP leader and MLA Sanjeev Jha said, “Bus marshals come from poor families, now it has become difficult for them to run the family expenses. Therefore, the LG should restore their jobs on humanitarian grounds, keeping in mind the plight of their families.” He added that the appointment of 10,000 bus marshals was cancelled on the orders of the LG.

“After continuous meetings, first 4000, then 9000 and later 10,000 bus marshals were appointed. These bus marshals did an excellent job in terms of the safety of people in buses. But just like the welfare schemes of Delhi have been treated unfairly by the officials on the instructions of the LG of Delhi, in the same way the appointment of these civil defence volunteers deployed as bus marshals was also cancelled,” Jha stated.

Kondli MLA Kuldeep Kumar also made an appeal and said that we once again request from the LG to restore the jobs of bus marshals, so that they can provide their services to the people of Delhi.

“When we passed the resolution on February 29, 2024, in the Delhi Assembly for the reinstatement of bus marshals and sent it to the Lieutenant Governor, we hoped that the bus marshals would be reinstated immediately,” Kumar said. He added that the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was also sad while giving his statement in the House that the bus marshals who were deployed by the Delhi government for the safety of the daughters and sisters of Delhi were also fired by LG without the permission of the Chief Minister or a minister.
