Protest In Bengaluru Demands Karnataka Jobs Be Reserved For Kannadigas
Karnataka jobs for Kannadigas - that was the demand of a rally in Bengaluru on Saturday. The protest was organised by a branch of the Kannada Rakshana Vedike - these groups have been at the forefront of other agitations too, such as the one against Hindi signboards in the Bengaluru Metro. The demands include 100 per cent reservation of jobs only for people from Karnataka in all state government departments and industries. They also say that union government departments in the state must recruit only those people from Karnataka who have studied Kannada in school. All banks - government and private - must recruit candidates who have studied Kannada in school, they add.
