Regularisation of DGHC casual workers opposed

Posted by Ramesh Khati on September 24, 2009

SILIGURI, 23 SEPT: The Siliguri-based anti-Gorkhaland pressure groups expressed anguish today over the regularisation of DGHC contractual workers by the state government. “Such a drive without settling the verification issue of foreigners among the Nepali settlers in the Darjeeling hills is unjustified and unconstitutional,” said the spokespersons of the Bangla O Bangla Bhasa Bacao Committee and Jana Chetana.
The state home secretary, Mr Ardhendu Sen met a GJMM delegation comprising members of the Jana Mukti Asthai Karmacahri Sangathan in Kolkata yesterday over the regularization issue. It was decided that a fresh recruitment drive would give priority to the contractual workers, though the matter related to making the contractual posts permanent remained unresolved.
Taking a serious view of the matter, the BOBBBC president, Dr Mukunda Majumder said that the state government had genuflected before the pressure tactics by the GJMM. “It is clear that the fasting agitation by the GJMM has made the state government buckle. But the stand of the state government is unconstitutional as the nationality of the workers remains under cloud,” Dr Majumder said.
Speaking on the matter, the Jana Chetana president, Dr Debaprasad Kar said: “Accommodating even a single Nepali citizen by the state government as a regular worker in any of its departments by the state government is a violation of the law of the land.”
