Government should desist from appointing non-govt officials on poll duty: AAP

Chandigarh, April 30, 2019 (Yes Punjab News)

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has raised its serious objection over the Punjab Government’s decision to appoint employees of the non-government schools, colleges and other institutions on poll duty.

In a statement issued from party office in Chandigarh here on Tuesday, Party’s Punjab campaign committee chief, Aman Arora, said that appointing employees of the non-government schools, colleges and other institutions on poll duty was a gross injustice with them, adding that the government should ensure that only government employees were asked to perform electoral duties.

Arora said that by appointing such employees on poll duty, what he described as highhandedness on the part of government, was a dictatorial decision, besides being an additional burden for the hapless employees, he said.

Arora said that the managements/ managing committees of non-government school, colleges and other educational institutes owe allegiance to one or the other political party, for instance, Sikh Gurudwara Prabandh Committee (SGPC), which runs a number of schools and colleges in the state and that it had a direct link with the Akali Dal (Badal).

Citing an example to prove his point, the AAP leader claimed that SGPC chief, Gobind Singh Longowal, accompanied SAD’s Sangrur nominee Parminder Singh Dhindsa, to file his nomination paper, which, he said, was totally unethical and unconstitutional on the part of chief of a religious organization.

The AAP leader appealed to the chief minister and the CEO to ensure appointment of only government employees to ensure free and fair election in the state as also to ensure that employees of the non-government organizations were not subjected to unmerited harassment.
