Nagpur: BJP Holds ‘Chappal Maro’ Protest Against MVA

BJP workers on Saturday held a ‘Chappal Maro’ protest against the MVA (Maha Vikas Aghadi) and then Congress Chief Ministers – Ashok Chavan and Prithviraj Chavan, who ran the Maharashtra government during the 15-year rule of the Democratic Front (DF) coalition (1999-2014) on the issue of contractual recruitment policy.

BJP workers thrashed posters of Uddhav Thackeray and MVA leaders for recruiting staff on a contract basis by nine private agencies, saying that it was the previous Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) dispensation that had taken a decision to hire workforce on a short-term basis.

Amid huge furore over recruitment policy in Maharashtra, Bhartiya Janata Party workers in Nagpur staged a ‘Chappal Maro’ protest against the then-ruling Congress Chief Minister of Maharashtra on his decision over the contractual recruitment policy.

Eknath Shinde led the Maharashtra Government on Saturday to put an end to contract hiring via outsourcing. Amid huge uproar and protests, the Maharashtra Government scrapped the Government resolution (GR) for contractual recruitments in various Government departments.

Earlier this month, Maharashtra Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) President Sharad Pawar targeted the Maharashtra Government over the ‘contractual hiring’ of personnel in Mumbai police and said that the recruitment should be done on a permanent basis.

“The state government has decided to make government recruitment on a contract basis. The delegation that met me raised some issues with me. The government has decided to recruit in the police force on a contract basis. Since this recruitment is only for 11 months, what next?”, he asked.

Sharad Pawar also said, “Since the tenure of the contract system is 11 months, how will the responsibilities given be fulfilled? Therefore, he demanded that “the recruitment should be done on a permanent basis instead of a contract system”.

Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Ajit Pawar asserted that recruitment in govt departments on a contract basis was the decision of the previous government.

He said, “More than 1.5 lakh recruitments are currently underway in various government departments, including police, health education and various others. The opposition seems to be spreading the news with different motives.”

Pawar said, “I can provide evidence of the individuals who endorsed this decision during the previous government’s term. Today, when they are no longer in power, they are shifting blame onto us, causing unwarranted damage to our reputation.” (ANI)
