Delhi BJP President Manoj Tiwari has welcomed the decision of Lt. Governor of Delhi to stall the recruitment of fresh teachers through Staff Selection Board (SSB).

The recruitment was earlier ordered by Arvind Kejriwal Government, which according to BJP, had ignored the claims of the Guest Teachers whose job and future are at stake.

Tiwari said that Delhi BJP has continuously said that the Guest Teachers who have given their prime time running government schools have the first claim over any regular teaching job that has to be filled.

Delhi BJP President said that after the recent announcement for the recruitment of teachers through SSB he had lodged a strong protest both with the Lt. Governor and Chief Minister of Delhi.

Last week, some agitating Guest Teachers had met Tiwari and sought his support – after which he had again appealed to the Government to consider a quota for the Guest Teachers and had spoken to the Lt. Governor of Delhi Anil Baijal again.

Tiwari said that Arvind Kejriwal Government should pass a Cabinet Note and call a Special Session of Delhi Assembly to pass a resolution suggesting regular teaching employment to all 17,000 Guest Teachers till the age of retirement with all benefits as applicable to regular teachers. BJP wants that Guest Teachers be absorbed as regular teachers.
