New Delhi: Punjab Congress Chief Navjot Singh Sidhu on Sunday joined a dharna by guest teachers outside Delhi Chief Minister and AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal’s residence. This comes days after Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal had visited Mohali and met teachers sitting on protest and had also raised the allegations of poor quality of government schools in Mohali.

“Delhi Education Model is Contract Model…Delhi government has 1,031 schools, while only 196 schools have principals. 45 per cent teachers’ posts are vacant and schools are run by 22,000 guest teachers on daily wages with renewal of contracts every 15 days,” Sidhu stated in a tweet.

Addressing media persons here, Sidhu said, “22,000 guest teachers are working as bonded labourers here.” The PCC chief further slammed Kejriwal for joining the protest of contractual teachers in Punjab’s Mohali last month.

“You should first solve the issues in your state before you come to Punjab to lure people there,” he added.

In the 2017 Punjab Assembly polls, Congress won an absolute majority in the state by winning 77 seats and ousted the SAD-BJP government after 10 years. Aam Aadmi Party emerged as the second-largest party winning 20 seats in 117-member Punjab Legislative Assembly. The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) could only manage to win 15 seats while the BJP secured 3 seats.
