The Bill was later passed by the House through a voice vote.

The bill for regularisation of services of guest teachers and teachers engaged under the "Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan" was introduced in the assembly by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia. He said: "LG saab, don't hide files from us.What state secrets do these files contain that they can not be shown to us? He (Sisodia) is an elected education minister, not a terrorist", Kejriwal said, drawing references from a dialogue of the 2010 Shah Rukh Khan starrer "My Name is Khan". Sirsa said, "This government gets those Bills passed for which it is serious, even after they are returned".

"Bureaucracy se nahin chalta hain desh, democracy se chalta hain desh". We are Delhi's masters.

They said that injustice was being done to them by giving preference to guest teachers.

Since storming to power in 2015, the AAP and the bureaucracy have shared an uneasy relationship with frequent run-ins over matters of jurisdiction, mainly due to the capital's administrative structure where the LG enjoys primacy over the elected CM. Last week, Delhi cabinet approved to regularise 15,000 guest teachers.

Baijal said the matter is related to "services".

BJP MLA O P Sharama, who was suspended for making "derogatory" remark against a female AAP legislator, was present in the one-day session of the house, after a gap over about one-and-a-half years.

He observed: "The foundation of the bill is flawed.One has to go by the rule of law, not rhetoric". He said it is unfortunate that the fate of Delhi is being decided by a novice Chief Minister who is interested more in creating problems than solving them. Kejriwal then said that he had only wanted to expose the "intention of the BJP and reaffirm the hollowness of their position on the matter". In a joint conference, BJP state president Manoj Tiwari and Arvinder Singh Lovely said yesterday the use of unparliamentarily language by the Chief Minister in the Legislative Assembly should be fully condemned.
