Haryana to seek legal opinion on fate of 3,206 JBT
Chandigarh: Haryana government on Thursday said it will seek legal opinion in the case of 3,206 JBT teachers, who were illegally recruited, after getting a copy of the Delhi Court judgement.
This was stated by Haryana Education Minister Geeta Bhukkal while replying to the questions of mediapersons at Panchkula.
Bhukkal clarified that the government would not work with political vendetta.
On January 16, the court had held 78-year-old Om Prakash Chautala, his son Ajay and 53 others guilty of illegally recruiting 3,206 junior basic trained (JBT) teachers in the state in 2000.
The teachers, who were illegally recruited as a result of the JBT scam, should not be allowed to remain in job, the court had said on Tuesday while handing down 10-year imprisonment to Chautala, his son Ajay Chautala and eight others.
On being asked to comment on the report of Justice Verma Committee, Bhukkal said thousands of suggestions were received by the committee to decide the punishment about crime against women. The final decision on the report submitted by the committee would be taken by the Centre.
She said any penalty or punishment for such heinous crime against a woman is less.
In reply to another question, Bhukkal said that `1091 helpline number` has been started in the state to help women in distress.
