Mumbai, May 15 (UNI) The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) today demanded cent per cent job reservation for Maharashtrian candidates in the forthcoming recruitment drive by State Bank of India (SBI).
MNS spokesperson Shirish Parkar told UNI over phone that they had submitted a six-point memorandum, signed by party chief Raj Thackeray, to Assistant General Manager G M Lele at Bank's zonal office in South Mumbai this afternoon.
Mr Parkar said the bank had given an advertisement in a local paper for the recruitment of 2,576 vacancies in Maharashtra circle.
He said their first demand is 100 per cent job reservation during this recruitment drive. The candidate should have opted for Marathi in the 10th standard board exams.
Their another demand is to advertise again in all five zones so that all the people can come to know about this recruitment drive and also extend the date of submission of application to June 15 instead of May 30, since the summer vacations are on.
Mr Parkar said they had asked the bank to accept the application fee by demand draft and make domicile certificate a must.
He said Mr Lele promised to give the advertisement again in all the zones. But, the management would have to consult their top brass in New Delhi for their other demands, he pointed out.
Mr Parkar said Mr Lele had sought time till May 23 to discuss their demands with the head office and said then get back with them about the decision on the other demands, he added.
Meanwhile, the Shiv Sena had also made similar representation.
