AAP failed to keep its promise, says contractual workers

Contractual Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) workers staged a protest outside the Delhi Secretariat demanding permanent employment on Monday.

Demands equal pay

Demanding equal pay for performing duties equal to those of their permanent colleagues, representatives of the striking DTC employees claimed the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government during its first 49-day stint in 2014 had promised that they would be made permanent.

“However, even after it formed the government again in 2015, it has not kept its promise to such employees,” alleged the DTC Aam Karamchari Union which represents the contractual employees.

The demand was echoed by the Delhi Parivahan Mazdoor Sangh, another union representing DTC employees. “The Delhi Parivahan Mazdoor Sangh demands that such temporary employees be made permanent as soon as possible,” said K.C. Malik of the Delhi Parivahan Mazdoor Sangh.

Union representatives claimed that they had put up a memorandum of their demands to the Delhi government which had promised to look into these and also to work a way out of the situation in the coming week.
