Mumbai, May 12 (UNI) After appealing to industry to provide employment to local youths, the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) has now demanded clerical jobs in State Bank of India (SBI) after the public sector bank, as part of its nationwide recruitment drive, had advertised for around 2,776 vacancies in the state.
According to a MNS release here today, they have demanded the jobs for the locals as per the government resolution of 1973, which says the locals should get 80 per cent of the jobs.
Sunil Basakhetre, president (Employment unit) of the MNS, said ''SBI should recruit locals in their banks and the 15 years residence proof of the locals should be checked before recruiting people and the bank should also accept applications other than online applications, as the youth in the rural areas do not have complete access to computers.'' Mr Basakhetre said the MNS would be closely monitoring the recruitment process and if locals were not given priority, then as per the instructions of its preseident Raj Thackeray, the MNS activists would fight to get justice for the locals.
