Mumbai,Feb2(Agencies): Encouraging local youths to appear in Railway examinations,the MNS on Wednesday released a handbook guiding Marathi job seekers to increase their presence in the Railways.
At a state Executive Meeting of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena here,its president Raj Thackeray distributed copies of the handbook to party activists, to be circulated among Railway job aspirants in the state.
"We fight to get priority for the sons of soil in Railway recruitment.
But our youth are not much aware about the recruitment process," Thackeray said .
