RJD head Lalu Prasad went in for seeking the reservations for at least 80% seats for locals, irrespective of caste, in all categories of government jobs.
On Wednesday, while Bihar CM Nitish Kumar was batting for reservation for Dalits in judiciary and private sector across the country, Lalu Prasad wanted a different sort of quota in all categories of government jobs in the state.
He was interviewed by an English National daily in which he said, "Bihar government should immediately make a necessary change in its quota policy and other related laws to reserve at least 80% seats for locals, irrespective of caste, in all categories of government jobs. Our boys and girls are running from pillars to post for job in other states, whereas people from other states are grabbing jobs in Bihar government. Claiming a large number of candidates from other states were "grabbing" jobs in Class-2 and Class-3 services of Bihar government in absence of well-defined job policy for the locals."
He told that, he would soon hold a discussion with CM Nitish Kumar on the issue of plight of Bihari students and press for reserving 80% seats for locals in all vacancies, to be filled by the Bihar Public Service Commission (BPSC), Bihar Staff Selection Commission (BSSC) or any other recruiting agency, in Bihar government. With his, another RJD member said, "A majority of candidates for the post of assistant professor mainly in science subjects who have been found eligible for interview hail from other states. Naturally, they would grab majority of unreserved seats. "Even candidates from far-off states like Kerala are being selected for the post of assistant professor in Bihar, whereas our boys are being denied job."
