Mumbai, Apr 9 (UNI) Indian Merchants Chamber (IMC) president Niraj Bajaj today came down heavily against the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena's (MNS) demand to keep 80 per cent of the jobs in private companies in the state reserved for Marathi-speaking habitants.
The demand was not only against India's Constitution but also defied all norms of economic competitiveness of any state or nation, said Mr Bajaj in a statement here.
He said the party's demand for job reservation for the Marathi-speaking people in private companies would also prove detrimental to industry's competitiveness.
Maharashtra is economically developed today because of the contribution of both locals and the migrants, he said, adding, the exodus of the migrants from the state due to recent agitation by the MNS against the North Indians had affected industry operations, leading to serious consequences in terms of economic losses.
