Gopal Rai

New Delhi, June 19 : Delhi Employment Minister Gopal Rai on Monday launched an online ‘Job Fair Portal’, through which job seekers can register themselves for private jobs.

Noting that in the last job fair, thousands lined up for 50 to 60 jobs, he said: “From now on, companies will first shortlist candidates through the portal and only the selected ones will have to appear for the job fair.”

Jobs seekers can access the portal at degs.org.in/jobfair or can access it at employment section of the Delhi government website.

Interested persons have to first register themselves by clicking on ‘Registration’ option under ‘Job Seekers’ tab in the portal and can then find out the vacancies. Similarly, companies have to register by clicking on the ‘Employer Login‘ tab.

Rai said that the government will write to private companies asking them to enroll in the portal, adding that they’re confident that the portal will make things more systematic and easier.

He also said that the government will hold a job fair between July 11 and 15 in Shahdara in east Delhi and candidates will be shortlisted through the Job Fair Portal.

Rai said the idea for the portal took shape after the last job fair in which they were not able to manage the high turn out.

Delhi Metro DMRC

New Delhi, June 24 : Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday morning inaugurated Delhi Metro’s Green Line service between Mundka to Bahadurgarh. Speaking via video-conferencing, the Prime Minister said that commuters should now get rid of private vehicles and opt for metro rail services

Modi inaugurated the facility through a video-conference facility from the PMO on Sunday. Union Urban Affairs Minister Hardeep Puri and Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar attended the function in Bahadurgarh.

The 11.2-km-long corridor will have seven stations and stretch out from existing Delhi Metro Green Line from Inderlok to Mundka.

“Our priority is to build convenient, comfortable and affordable urban transport systems in our cities,” he said.

With this line, Bahadurgarh has become third Haryana city to have DMRC services. Metro lines were already operational in Gurgaon (Yellow Line) and Faridabad (Violet Line).

“The process of making Metro systems is also linked to cooperative federalism. Wherever Metros are being built in India, the Centre and the respective state Governments are working together,” he added.

The Prime Minister also emphasised on Make in India by suggesting that metro coaches should be built indigenously. “We also want to boost make in India by making coaches of the Metro in India itself. Several nations helped us in the making of the Delhi Metro and other Metros, and now, we are helping other nations by designing coaches for their Metro systems,” he said.

Speaking on Bahadurgarh, the PM said, ” Bahadurgarh is witnessing tremendous economic growth, there are several educational centres there, students from there even travel to Delhi. The Metro will bring convenience to this part, which is considered the gateway to Haryana.”

“There is a direct link between connectivity and development. The Metro will bring more colonies, more people coming to Bahadurgarh. It will also mean more employment opportunities for local people,” he added.

Srinagar, June 23 (IANS) Kashmir Editors Guild (KEG) on Saturday condemned the statement of former Minister and BJP leader Choudhary Lal Singh who, a day ago, said Kashmiri journalists must be aware of their conduct after the killing of senior journalist Shujaat Bukhari.

“Invoking the brutal assassination of senior editor Shujaat Bukhari, Singh has suggested to the Kashmir media to draw a line and to decide if they have to work the way he (Bukhari) was working. Singh has moved way ahead and issued a direct threat to the media in Kashmir,” the KEG said in a statement.

The editors’ body further said: “Lal Singh has accused the Kashmir media of creating a wrong atmosphere.”

The KEG said Lal Singh had invoked Shujaat Bukhari’s murder at a time when police in Srinagar was investigating the case and that his statement indicated that he holds some information about the murder which must be investigated.

Lal Singh, who resigned from the cabinet in April following his participation in a rally organised by the Hindu Ekta Manch in January in support of those accused of rape and murder of a young girl in Kathua, made the remarks in a presser on Friday.

The Guild said they reserved the right to lodge a police case against the lawmaker who had earlier named a number of reporters for his “fall from grace in wake of the Kathua probe”.
