Andhra Pradesh Govt passed a bill to reserve 75 percent of jobs to locals in all industries in the state even as Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy assured the industry that his government will extend every possible help to them.The bill, passed by a voice vote, is aimed at providing three-fourth of all jobs for locals in all industries, including units, factories, joint ventures and projects set up under public-private partnership mode in the state.Assuring that there will be no corruption at any level in the state, Jagan Reddy said the government would pursue a transparent policy for industrialisation.We are ready to do anything for you.
We only want jobs for our children,” the Chief Minister told the industry. He questioned that the industries make false promises to local people and acquire lands but after setting the units, they fail to provide jobs to local educated youth. “Why will people come forward to give land if their children and the educated youth dont get jobs. The Chief Minister said existing industries take three years to provide 75 per cent jobs to locals. The government will spend the money and work with the industry to train the youth in the required skills.
