Govt to create 2.5 lakh jobs for Kannadigas

 Speaking at the Workers’ Kannada Convention organised by the Kannada Development Authority (KDA), Yeddyurappa said the government had already provided employment to 2.5 lakh Kannadigas through job fairs organised across the State.

He further said the government will strive to implement the Sarojini Mahishi report recommendation on providing priority to local people in hiring. Government will make it mandatory for industries eager to set up units in the State to give an undertaking that they would provide jobs to the local population. He received a memorandum from labour unions and pro-Kannada organisations, including the one seeking a status report from  industries on a periodic basis about the vacancies available and the recuitments of local population, hosting a Kannada website on job opportunities in the State and central government institutions, opening of “Kannada centres” in all companies among others.
