MNS city leader Ravindra More along with the party workers visited the office located at Wagle Estate to question the motive.
Upon reaching, the MNS leader sought an explanation as to why was the firm seeking only non-Marathi recruits for jobs.
However, the firm told the party that the advertisement was issued by the main office and they were not aware of it.
Speaking to TOI online, Ravindra More said, “The ad had appeared somewhere and it was mentioned that they will recruit non-Marathi people. Some person came to my office and showed me that ad and soon we rushed to the firm’s office.”
More added that when they reached, the police were already present there.
“As soon as we reached, the officials there started apologising saying they had no idea and claimed that they had 80 per cent Marathi employees. They also said that now, whatever recruitment will happen, it will be of Marathi people.”
Meanwhile, in a letter to Ravindra More, the firm said “The main office is located at Baroda in Gujarat and an advertisement was given for recruitment by the Gujarat HR, which stated that non-Marathi people will be given the preference. However, we had no idea about it.”

In a written application, the officer also apologised and assured that they will take further action after getting information from the HR office.
The MNS leader stated that they will present a bouquet to them when they fulfill the promise to hire Marathi people.
The official from the firm said that they did not tend to hurt anyone’s feelings and they don’t believe in discrimination.
“As soon as we got to know, we informed the HR department, and the ad has been removed.”
