Haryana Government Preparing Ground For Privatization Of Education System: Dushyant Chautala
Haryana Government - PC : BW Education
The INLD's Hisar MP Dushyant Chautala on Sunday alleged the BJP government in Haryana was preparing the ground for privatization of education in the state.

"As part of this process, no recruitment in the education department will be made through the constitutional bodies that exist and it will be done by private agencies instead," he alleged.

Chautala claimed that as a first step, the contract for hiring employees for C and D categories had already been given to the private sector. 

"Steps have already been taken by a new company to recruit candidates against the vacant posts. The companies selected for the job will be handed over a contract for seven years and will get a commission of 2.01 per percent while the teachers will be paid a lump sum. Such companies will be recruiting teachers for primary schools of the state," he further claimed.

The Hisar MP claimed that "this anti-people and anti-education policy of the government will adversely impact the equal opportunity right to seek employment".

He added that by adopting this model of "outsourcing", the government would also render the constitutional bodies such as the Haryana Staff Selection Commission and the Employment Exchanges redundant.

Chautala said that according to information received through an RTI, in 12 districts of the state there were 2,62,768 registered unemployed people.

"Of these, only 290 have been provided jobs by the government, which is barely 0.1 per cent of the total registered unemployed people. 

"The same RTI also informs that under the much-touted scheme to provide employment of 100 hours to the unemployed youth only 9,948 have been provided employment for 100 hours, which is only three per cent of the registered youth under the scheme," he claimed.
