The present Congress government of Himachal Pradesh will not stop the schemes running in the name of any former Prime Minister. Chief Minister Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu gave the above information in reply to BJP members Vinod Kumar and Lokendra Kumar during the Question Hour in the Vidhansabha on Monday. He said that coming and going of governments is a continuous process. The present government honors the schemes running in the names of all former prime ministers. Along with this, the government has increased the salary of outsourced employees. The government says that it is considering making a policy for outsourced employees.
Chief Minister Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu said that his government has great regard and respect for all former Prime Ministers including Atal Bihari Vajpayee. All the schemes started in his name will continue. Along with this, the Chief Minister termed as baseless the apprehension expressed by Leader of Opposition Jairam Thakur about the future of the schools built under the Atal Adarsh Vidyalaya Yojana started by the previous BJP government.
He said that under the Rajiv Gandhi Day-Boarding School Scheme, schools would be opened within a radius of 3 to 4 kilometers from the SDM office. Students of all primary schools falling in this area will be included in these. Other facilities including playground will be made available in these schools. Swimming pools will also be made in schools. CM Sukhu said that the government is spending 36 thousand rupees on each child of primary school.
Earlier, Education Minister Rohit Thakur said that land has been selected for Rajiv Gandhi Day Boarding in all 68 assembly constituencies of the state. Out of these, the land in 9 assembly constituencies has been named after the education department. In 22 assembly constituencies, cases for FCA clearance of these schools have been sent for approval. On the other hand, Leader of Opposition Jairam Thakur said that there is no clarity in the concept of Rajiv Gandhi Day-Boarding School.
The Himachal Pradesh government is also considering making a policy for outsourced employees as thousands of youths are employed in this category. Chief Minister Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu gave this information in response to a question by MLA Indradutt Lakhanpal during the Question Hour in the Vidhan Sabha on Monday. He said that a large number of youths are working as outsourcers in the state. Until the policy is formulated, the government is increasing their remuneration by Rs 750 per month.
The Chief Minister said that five thousand regular appointments will be made in the Jal Shakti Department. Outsourced workers should apply for these jobs. No outsourced employee will be removed from the job. Provision of medical, travel and ESI is also being made for these employees. Government is deliberating on the issue of jobs on compassionate grounds so that fresh terms and conditions can be fixed. The process of FCA approval is underway on 230 roads to be constructed under NABARD in the state.
