Ahead of elections, the Haryana government had made new appointments in the state and out of which nearly 1,600 appointees have not been allotted departments so far. It also came to know that many departments have not sufficient seats to allot to the new employees. Prior to new appointments in Group D, the government amended the service rules enabling the contractual employees to take professional training according to the departmental needs and the same will be arranged by the department. It also came to light that non-allotment of seats to newly appointed employees may cause worries to the government ahead of elections. About 15,000 contractual employees have been made to join in recent years by various state governments and in view of new regular appointments, government started the process to suspend the services of contractual employees.
But due to the forthcoming parliamentary and assembly elections, the state government decided to withdraw the orders pertaining to the same. Ahead of elections, the government is not taking risk to remove the contractual employees. Amid all this, the government asked the officials to come up with a new strategy which suits both factions. Media Adviser to CM Rajiv Jain could not be reached on the same. In view of elections, the present scenario would result in loss of votes for the ruling BJP. There are a lot of departments having contractual employees. It seems appointments have been made without complete information about vacancies. Though the Supreme Court had already ordered not to make any contractual appointments and same should be followed by governments.
