A delegation of Congress leaders today met Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung and demanded that the government should not take any steps to remove contractual teachers and home guards.

"Congress leaders today met the LG and demanded that the over 10,000 contractual teachers and 4,000 Home Guards should not be removed from their jobs," Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee president Arvinder Singh said here.

Singh, who led the delegation, said the LG had assured them that the government would soon take a suitable decision in this regard.

The administration will render nobody jobless, the LG is said to have told the delegation.

Addressing teachers and home guards outside the residence of the LG, Singh and party colleagues Haroon Yusuf and Mukesh Sharma alleged that the former AAP government had betrayed them after promising that their jobs would be made permanent.

Singh asked the teachers and home guards to unite with the unions of other temporary employees.

He said that Congress itself would soon be taking steps to unite temporary employees of all government departments.
