Badnawar (Madhya Pradesh): Congress workers from Badnawar and its adjoining areas staged protest in front of Wonder Cement plant and soya plant in Kherwas demanding 75% reservation for local youth in employment. They submitted a memorandum to factory management and tehsildar.
The memorandum alleged that RK Group's Wonder Cement Plant and Soya Plant were ignoring local unemployed youths.
Two-third of working staff was from other states. Even security guard was appointed from outside through agency of another state.
There was a provision to give 75% employment in industry to locals of the area, but it was flouted by Wonder Cement Plant and Soya Plant thus resulting in protest.
Their main demand was that 75% jobs should be given to local unemployed youth and 100% recruitment in security guards should be at the local level.
Senior Congress leader and former district president GP Singh and others were present.
