MSRTC job for one family member of those killed in Maratha

Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

Maharashtra Transport Minister Diwakar Raote Saturday announced that one person from the family of those who died during the Maratha quota protests earlier this year would get a job in the Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC).

He said Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray had assured that all possible help will be extended to the families of those who lost their lives in the quota stir.

The bill to provide 16 percent quota in jobs and education to the Maratha community was passed in the winter session of the state legislature which concluded on November 30.

During the winter session, the opposition had claimed that 40 persons had died during the Maratha reservation stir.
