Reiterating the firm commitment of the state government to regularise the services of all the eligible contractual employees, Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann today announced to constitute a three-member Cabinet committee comprising Cabinet Ministers Harpal Cheema, Gurmeet Singh Meet Hayer and Harjot Singh Bains to remove all the legal hurdles for passing a new bill in this regard, said the Chief Minister's Office (CMO) on Thursday.
Announcing this at the floor of the Punjab Vidhan Sabha, the Chief Minister said that the state government is fully sensitive towards the need for regularising the services of the employees working on contract, ad-hoc, daily wages, work charges and temporary basis.
The Chief Minister said, "The state government will not hesitate to convene a special session of the state assembly for introducing this new bill."
Bhagwant Mann said that this was the top priority of the state government and no stone will be left unturned for this noble cause.
He said that the state government is duty-bound to give relief to these employees for which all the legal hurdles will be cleared before implementing the new draft bill so that it doesn't hang in fire like the previous bills.
