CHENNAI: Former chief minister and ousted AIADMK leader O Panneerselvam on Monday condemned the DMK government for allegedly issuing an order to bring down the number of permanent jobs in Corporations and planning to engage workforce on outsourcing mode.

“It is learned that the government issued an order to reduce the permanent workers number from 35,000 to 3,500 in 20 Corporations, excluding the Chennai Corporation. The government has also directed the authorities not to fill the posts of permanent workers once they retired,” said OPS in a statement.
