Badal promises recruitment on regular basis if elected to power

Written by: Staff

Anandpur Sahib, Apr 18 (UNI) The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today resolved that it would go for the recruitment on regular basis in Punjab if the people of the state elected the party to power in the next Assembly elections due in February 2007.

The contract system initiated by the present Amarinder Singh government in the state would be abolished and this promise would become the part of the SAD's manifesto, SAD president Parkash Singh Badal conveyed at the party's two-day training camp which concluded here today.

''The jobs on contract means that the employees are black mailed as they can be kicked out any time and, thus, we (SAD) are against this contract system which has been initiated by the present regime,'' Mr Badal said, while addressing the party convention.

Several Akali leaders spoke on the occasion as also the future prospects of the party.

Later talking to mediapersons, Mr Badal stated that several Congressleaders were not happy with certain decisions taken by the Amarinder Singh government like the jobs on contrat at low salaries and sanctions given to various mega projects in industry and urban planning.

He pointed out that Punjab Congress chief Shamsher Singh Dullo had yesterday expressed dissatisfaction over the nod given to the mega projects in the state. ''If Mr Dullo himself says that these proposed mega projects would not yield anything positive for the welfare of the people, you can very well imagine the state in which the Congress party is at present,'' Mr Badal said.
