New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has emphasised timely changes in recruitment rules at all the ministries of the central government, paving the way for the creation of more jobs, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said on Wednesday.
Distributing appointment letters on regularisation of over 4,400 muster roll employees of the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) at Talkatora stadium here, Shah said Modi has also worked to end uncertainties in many areas, which is why everyone is saying “Modi Hai To Mumkin Hai”.
“Modi due to his innate decision-making capability has ended uncertainties in many areas while working earlier as chief minister of Gujarat and now as prime minister of the country. An example of this is the appointment letters received by you. That is why whether children, elderly or youth — everyone says Modi hai to Mumkin hai,” he said.
Shah said the prime minister himself has exerted thrust on timely changes in recruitment rules and conditions in all the ministries of the Union government. “This is why these appointment letters are being given.”
Congratulated the regularised NDMC employees, he said they were provided respect and pride through regularisation under Modi’s leadership, which was a matter of great pleasure and satisfaction to him.
Shah hoped that the NDMC workforce of 13,000 employees strengthened by 4,400 regularised muster role workers will work to ensure that a positive message is conveyed to the heads of states, who will visit the national capital during a G-20 Summit in September.
The Union home minister said the reason for the lack of regularisation was that there were no recruitment rules.
The rules were prepared and the DoPT approval was obtained and now regularisation has happened, he added.
Shah said the process of regularisation was completed with the creation of 900 additional posts in the NDMC to accommodate all the 4,400 muster role workers.
He said the NDMC needed to be strengthened in the coming days with a focus on service delivery and sanitation wherein the employees have a crucial role to play.
The function was also attended by Union minister and New Delhi MP Meenakshi Lekhi, Delhi Lt Governor V K Saxena, Union Home Secretary AK Bhalla and Delhi Chief Secretary Naresh Kumar.
Shah also inaugurated 120 flats of the NDMC constructed at Pushp Vihar for the civic body’s employees.
Lekhi said all the credit for regularisation of 4,400 temporary workers of the NDMC went to Shah and the leadership of Prime Minister Modi, and no one else was responsible for it.
“Before anyone jumps to take credit, I want to say that this was done by Amit Shah as home minister and no one else has any credit for it,” she added.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had in February written a letter to Shah seeking approval for draft recruitment rules of Group ‘C’ posts in the NDMC for grant of permanent status to regular muster roll employees working there.
