Ex-Haryana CM Om Prakash Chautala angers as government notifies private sector job quota
The ex-Haryana CM and the head of the INLD, Om Prakash Chautala, disapproved of the Haryana government’s law requiring a 75% reservation for residents of the private sector. While the Haryana State Local Candidate Employment Bill was initially passed by the State Assembly on November 5, 2020, Governor Satyadev Narayan Arya approved it on February 28. According to the notification issued by the State Department of Labor on November 6, this law covers corporations, corporations, trusts and partnerships and will come into force on January 15, 2022.
“It is not in accordance with the law. In this country, every citizen has the same rights regardless of the state to which he belongs. It cannot be changed,” noted Om Prakash Chautala. Incidentally, her grandson and Haryana MP Dushyant Chautala had spearheaded the demand for the aforementioned law to be enacted.
