Major food industry to come up in Mulbagal: Legislator

Considering rise in unemployment in the district, a major food industry will be set up at Mulbagal and London-based entrepreneurs have come forward to establish the industry. Measures have been taken to provide them with suitable site for the firm, said Legislator Amaresh.

He was speaking at a job fair organised at the Government PU College premises in the town on Monday. Following depletion in groundwater level, irrigation has severely affected. This has led to rise in unemployment in the district. Setting up such industries here will address unemployment issue to an extent, he added.

He further said that lands have already been identified in the taluk to set up industries and process of transferring lands to these units is already on, he added. At least 4,000 to 5,000 youth will be able to get jobs here, he added.

The job fair organised by Rajiv Gandhi Seva Trust and Rural Development Institute, Mulbagal and district unit of Kannada Sene Karnataka witnessed a good turn out.
State Women Congress wing general secretary Sujatha Ramesh and Taluk Sheep and Wool Development Corporation president Venkatesh Gowda were present.
