Effective implementation of Dr. Sarojini Mahishi will get us:

1. To get Karnataka’s rightful share in all the Indian jobs (See Chart of government of India survey).

2. To get the control of seat of power at Vidhana saudha, which is captured by migrant lobbies through deceit.

3. To get Kannadigas their OWN jobs in Karnataka government and other jobs in Karnataka.

4. To throw out forgers in seat of power who have used false migration certificates, false Kannada proficiency certificates etc apart from regular corruption in recruitment methods.

`Some changes to recommendations can be made’



Sarojini Mahishi



HUBLI: Former Union Minister Sarojini Mahishi said here on Wednesday that it is preposterous to say that problems will arise if the recommendations made by the committee headed by her (on jobs for Kannadigas) are implemented.

Ms. Mahishi, who was here to release a book on Siddharoodha Swamiji, told presspersons that problems are bound to arise when recommendations of committees are implemented. “You need to make some changes to recommendations if the need arises. If there is any impediment during implementation, it can be sorted out,” she said.

“Nearly two decades have passed after the submission of the report. Things have changed a lot and some changes need to be made while implementing the report,” she said. Reiterating her stand that posts have to be reserved for Kannadigas, she said the committee has not recommended jobs for Kannadigas who are not eligible. “What we have said is that qualified Kannadigas should be given a job,” Dr. Mahishi said.

To a question, she said there were four retired IAS officers in the committee headed by her, and every recommendation was carefully drafted after giving attention to details.

Dr. Mahishi said she does not want to draw inferences with the regard to implementation of the committee’s final report that was submitted in 1986.

She said she has discharged her duties and it is for the Government to take action.
