NAGROTA MARCH 31- National Conference Provincial President Mr Devender Singh Rana on Friday sought 40 per cent share in the recruitment in various non-teaching support staff for the talented and enterprising local youth in the Indian Institute of Technology and Indian Institute of Management.
“Since the two prestigious institutes of professional learning are located in the constituency, the locals have a genuine stake and claim in the recruitments”, Mr Rana said while undertaking tour of the Panjgarian area this afternoon.
Mr Rana said the area has fairly good number of educated and talented youth besides skilled and unskilled workforce, which are needed to be considered for appointment as per their qualifications and requirements. “The locals have raised these institutions with their blood and sweat and they are legitimately the main stakeholders”, he said and hoped that the managements would consider their aspirations while making recruitments against various positions in the support staff.
Interacting with people during his visit, the MLA Nagrota appreciated the resilience and support of the people in making the constituency a most sought after destination for academic, sports and tourism activities. Being in close vicinity of the winter capital, the constituency offers vistas of opportunities in sports, tourism and housing sector, which is why every effort is being made to harness this potential optimally, he said, adding that he will knock every door to have the vision of people accomplished in making Nagrota a model constituency.
