CHANDI­GARH: Pun­jab unit chief of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Lok Sabha nom­i­nee from San­grur, Bhag­want Mann, said chief min­is­ter Arvind Ke­jri­wal gov­ern­ment in Delhi had al­ready given its nod to re­store the old pen­sion scheme (2004) for gov­ern­ment em­ploy­ees, and it is now turn of the Pun­jab gov­ern­ment to fol­low suit.

In a state­ment is­sued from party head­quar­ters in Chandi­garh here on Tues­day, Mann said that Cap­tain Amarinder Singh-led Congress gov­ern­ment had be­fooled the em­ploy­ees in the state, forc­ing them to take to streets.

Terming the in­tro­duc­tion of the new pen­sion scheme as antiem­ploy­ees, the AAP leader said that the Shi­ro­mani Akali DalBharati­ya Janata Party and the Congress-led gov­ern­ments were run­ning away from their pri­mary duty.

He said the gov­ern­ment should move a res­o­lu­tion in the com­ing assem­bly ses­sion to ex­pe­dite the mat­ter.

Slam­ming the state gov­ern­ment, Mann said it should im­me­di­ately abol­ish con­trac­tual ap­point­ments and reg­u­larise the ser­vices of the em­ploy­ees de­mand­ing a stand­ing pol­icy of re­cruit­ment for em­ploy­ees on a per­ma­nent ba­sis.
