Monday criticised the National Conference-led coalition government in the state for delaying implementation of its own decision to regularise the services of ad hoc and contractual
employees.

"These employees have been facing the worst kind of
injustice due to dithering attitude and vacillating approach
of the government over the crucial issue," state secretary of
CPI(M) and MLA M Y Tarigami said in a statement here.

The decision to regularise such employees who have
completed service for seven years or more was taken by the
state cabinet last year following which Legislature passed
the Bill, Tarigami said.

Despite all hurdles being removed, contractual and adhoc
employees have not been confirmed yet and the government
should act fast on the matter, he said.

Maintaining that non-implementation of the decision would
dent the credibility of the government, he said, "Such
apathetic attitude of the administration is fuelling
disillusionment among the youth."
"Nobody will be allowed to play with the future of
thousands of youth in the state," Tarigami said.

Demanding regularisation orders in favour of the
non-permanent employees forthwith, Tarigami said any further
delay in the implementation of the decision would boomerang on
the government and negate its oft-repeated slogans of
transparency and accountability.
"These employees have been receiving peanuts for their
services rendered over the years. They have been looking
forward to their regularisation for nearly a decade now and
every time they have to face dejection and despondency," he
said.
