A large number of youths demonstrated in Ranchi on Saturday demanding reservation for local candidates in all government jobs in Jharkhand.

Protesters under the banner of the Jharkhand State Students' Union (JSSU) took out a symbolic 'last journey' of Chief Minister Hemant Soren near Ranchi College before burning an effigy in Morabadi area.

The protesters tried to lay siege to the Vidhan Sabha on Thursday with their demands, but the police lathi-charged them.

JSSU leader Devendra Nath Mahto said, “We wanted to submit a memorandum to the chief minister on Thursday, requesting him to change the state's recruitment policy so that 100 per cent jobs are ensured for Jharkhand students.

But, the Chief Minister did not pay any attention to our demand.” Mahato said that the government should fulfill their demands by March 27, otherwise an “aggressive movement” would be started.
