"Kannadigas Will Get Lion's Share Of Jobs In Karnataka,": BS Yediyurappa
By Ndtv 15-Aug-2019
"There has been an increasing demand that the employment representations of Kannadigas in jobs in Karnataka are on decline. It is our established and stated stand that Kannadigas must get a lion's share in jobs available in Karnataka," Mr Yediyurappa said.
Delivering his Independence Day address in Bengaluru, he said the government's policy echoes this view. "On this occasion, I would like to reiterate and declare that this government respects the sentiments of the people of this land. We are committed to ensuring that the self-respect and job opportunities of Kannadigas are never compromised or come under threat," he said.
"At the same time, in the federal structure, we are ready to offer equal opportunities to all those who come to Karnataka seeking employment opportunities," Mr Yediyurappa added.
On Wednesday, pro-Kannada activists held a day-long protest demanding jobs for locals. There have also been social media campaigns on this issue in recent times. Activists are also demanding a policy similar to Andhra Pradesh, which recently passed a legislation mandating employment of at least 75 per cent state candidates in local industries.
