“Jharsuguda BJP Yuva Morcha, have staged a protest against the Vedanta Ltd. over the local employment issue, as per Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), Vedanta Ltd. is not giving employment to the locals instead they are giving employment to the people outside the state. The company always asks for the experience by the local youths but till now, Vedanta has not given any training to these youths neither they have opened any training centre in this regard. But in coming days if the company doesn’t give local employment, then this protest will be intensified.” said Smt. Radha Rani Panda, District President, Bharatiya Janta Party, Jharsuguda.
