The Maratha Kranti Morcha has decided to stage demonstrations outside Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (MSEDCL) offices across the state on Tuesday to protest against “denial of job opportunities to Maratha youth”. The Morcha on Sunday also decided to hold a “long march” to state legislature in Mumbai on December 8.
The decisions were taken at the state-level meeting of the organisation held in Pune on Sunday.
Rajendra Kondhare, coordinator of the Morcha, said, “Before the Supreme Court stayed the SEBC Act, the MSEDCL had carried out the recruitment process. Only appointment letters were yet to be issued. After the implementation of the Act was stayed, Maratha youths were not issued the appointment letters while others were given.”
Kondhare said in view of the “denial of opportunity to Maratha youths”, demonstrations will be held outside MSEDCL offices across the state.
