Bengaluru: Amid a growing clamour to reserve jobs for Karnataka residents, Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa on Thursday said his government is committed to ensuring employment opportunities of Kannadigas are never compromised and they get a lion’s share.

The chief minister also called on those migrating to Karnataka to adapt to the Kannada culture, lifestyle and language, without compromising their identity.

“There has been an increasing clamour 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,” Yediyurappa said.

Delivering his Independence Day address here, 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,” Yediyurappa added.

On Wednesday, pro-Kannada activists held a day-long protest demanding jobs for locals.

Also, there have been social media campaigns on this issue recently.

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.

Yediyurappa also called on those migrating to Karnataka to adapt to the Kannada culture, lifestyle and the language.

“In this regard, Kannadigas lead by example. Kannadigas no matter where they go and settle blend seamlessly with the country or town of adoption. This is worth emulating,” he added.

He said Karnataka is an important state among the “progressive states” in the country, adding his government was committed to building a wealthy and healthy Karnataka, while keeping the lead.
