“Today AAP Punjab Govt has taken another historic decision and started the process to regularize 35,000 contractual government employees. We’re here to fulfill every promise made to people before the election. We’ve come to change the system,” Mann tweeted, along with a video message.

This is the second job-related announcement made by the Chief Minister since the AAP came into power in Punjab.

In the first cabinet meeting, the AAP government passed a proposal of providing a total of 25,000 government jobs.

Of these, a total of 10,000 vacancies are in the Punjab Police and the remaining 15,000 are in other departments.
