Most of the politicians won’t abide by their promises that were made during their election campaign. But, this line seems to be not applicable to one politician. He is none other than Andhra Pradesh CM YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. During Jagan’s padayatra campaign, he has made the promise of private job reservation for the local youths.
Upon to his promise, yesterday Jagan has passed a bill in the assembly that will reserve 75% of jobs in factories for the local youths in Andhra Pradesh. The Andhra Pradesh Employment of Local Candidates in Industries/Factories Act, 2019 bill was approved by the assembly. This would be a milestone act in Jagan’s political career.
With this bill, Andhra Pradesh will be the first state in the whole country to provide such a reservation for youths in the private sector. As per the passed bill, if any industry fails to find the necessary skills in the youth, then they have to train them in association with the government. The company/industry has to move as per the act and also have to submit a quarterly compliance report, reportedly.
On the other hand, Madhya Pradesh CM has also promised for 70 % of employment for local youths in his state. Speaking to this Madhya Pradesh Cm said, “The incentives that we give, can be availed by the industries only when the 70 percent of the employment is local, from Madhya Pradesh.
There are many industries where people from other states are employed, from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh… I am not criticizing them but our youth from Madhya Pradesh are denied jobs. So industries which employ 70 percent local youth will only be able to avail the incentives”
