New Delhi: Guest teachers teaching in Municipal Corporation of Delhi schools have expressed their heartfelt gratitude to the Delhi government for renewing their contracts and releasing their salaries. Everyone became emotional remembering the terrible behavior of the BJP-ruled MCD towards themselves. He said that the BJP-ruled MCD has not paid him salary for one-and-a-half-two years and has now refused to renew the contracts.
Meanwhile, he met Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, after which the Delhi government released the salary of all guest teachers from their own funds.
Senior Aam Aadmi Party leader and MCD in-charge Durgesh Pathak issued a statement on Sunday. “We told you how the BJP sitting in the MCD refused to renew the contracts of around 700 guest teachers. All the guest teachers were working without pay for about one and a half years. At first the BJP did not pay them. When it came to salary and renewal, he said we don’t need you anymore. Think what would happen to their families if they did not get salary for so long and suddenly became unemployed. How will their families survive? What will he feed his family, his wife and children? But the brutal BJP will not understand this.”
He said, “They reached out to the mayor and leaders of the BJP about their problems, but there too they were disappointed. These people got upset and met Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy CM Manish Sisodia. And now they are all very happy as mangoes. Aam Aadmi Party not only renewed their contract but also released everyone’s salary from its fund. The guest teachers, happy with the Delhi government’s support, told us how the BJP’s MCD harassed them time and again. I would like them to speak their mind in front of the public.”
Manoj Vats, president of All Delhi Contract Teachers Association said, “We were continuously pushing for renewal of our contract for almost two years. It became difficult to run the family due to non-payment of salary. We met the mayor of BJP and the municipal corporation. Leader in. No one understood our pain. He said that Aam Aadmi Party understood our problem. Considering the problem of Delhi’s education system and condition of contract teachers, they renewed our contract and funded our salary. Therefore, I and my team express our gratitude to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, MCD in-charge Durgesh Pathak ji, Chief Spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj ji and Leader of Opposition Vikas Goel ji.
All Delhi Contractual Teachers Association teachers Pradeep Rathi, Mamta Tokas, Geeta Shokeen, Parul Yadav, Neeru Pal and Saba Khan said, “During Corona, we were not getting salary for the last one and a half years. Many times in MCD for salary, every time his only answer was that we do not have money to pay you. We kept on begging. And finally now they have sent us a written notice that they no longer need us. Our family has suffered a lot during all this. There were also problems in getting ration at home but our problems were not visible to the people of BJP. We are thankful to the Delhi government that as soon as they have released the fund for the salary, it went to them. The Chief Minister’s team assured us that he would stand by us in our difficult times. We all heartily thank Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal ji and his team.”
