Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Monday said that Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann has fulfilled yet another poll-promise that will boost the morale of teachers by announcing permanent recruitment of 8736 teachers and implementation of University Grant Commission’s (UGC) pay scales as per seventh pay commission to the teachers of colleges and universities.
Addressing a press conference here, chief spokesperson Malwinder Singh Kang said that on the occasion of teacher’s day today, CM Mann while fulfilling long pending demands of teachers has announced implementation of 7th UGC pay scale from October 1, 2022.
He said that CM Mann-led AAP is not like traditional parties who were only focused on filling their coffers and ignored the welfare of the people. This is a government of the people and for the people.
CM Mann has also announced recruitment of guest faculty teachers in colleges. CM Mann also announced enhancement of honorarium of the Guest faculty teachers.
Lashing out at former CM Charanjit Singh Channi for befooling people, he said that unlike the Congress chief minister Channi, CM Mann has fulfilled his promise to teachers. He said that from 2017 onwards, Congress had promised to implement the pay scale of UGC but they didn’t fulfill its promise but CM Mann did it six months after forming the government.
He said that it is the aim of the Mann government to give good education to the children of Punjab and also to provide handsome salaries to teachers.
He said that the AAP party welcomed the decision of CM Mann for giving this special gift to teachers today. The intention of the government is clear as earlier only announcements were made but now within 6 six months many poll-promises have been fulfilled.
Kang also attacked Congress for circulating fake letterhead of AAP on social media to malign the party’s image and cautioned them to not play such cheap political tactics in future.
