MahaJobs to play match-maker between Maha employers, jobless



Uddhav Thackeray

Mumbai, July 6 : Amid spiralling unemployment in the Covid-19 pandemic, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Monday unveiled the ”MahaJobs” portal intended to connect employers and those looking for jobs.

However, with a key condition of ”Domicile Certificate”, a majority of the jobs are likely to go to the locals, in tune with the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government”s sons-of-the-soil policy for employment.

“It”s a major step that will bridge the gap between the employers and those needing jobs, including skilled, semi-skilled or unskilled workers. All companies or employers and the job-seekers can register on the portal for their requirements,” Thackeray said.

He pointed out that during lockdown, many migrant workers have left for their home states, though some are now returning in trickles to various industrial centres.

“This implies that there is work and jobs are available, but the workers are not. This is where the MahaJobs portal will be helpful to all in a transparent manner,” the CM said.

Thackeray reiterated his appeal to companies and industries not to effect layoffs or pay-cuts, especially when the government is striving to create more employment opportunities, laying out the red-carpet for investors and industries in the state.

Industry Minister Subhash Desai said that job-seekers will provide all their relevant information, their qualifications and skills, required documentation including Domicile Certificate and the employers shall provide details of their requirements.

Unlike the erstwhile employment exchanges, the MIDC will ensure full help to both till the final process is completed with full transparency.

The MIDC has already identified 950-plus trades/skills for 17 sectors including IT, medicine, engineering, logistics, chemicals, etc. and the Skill Development Department will start short-term courses for those who desire to develop skills.

MahaJobs is a joint venture between the departments of Industry, Labour and Skill Development/Entrepreneurship intended to respond to the current crisis hitting both employers and job-seekers after the pandemic and lockdown.

Present on the occasion were Thackeray, Desai, ministers Dilip Walse-Patil, Nawab Malik, Aditi Tatkare, top officials like B. Venugopal Reddy, Dr. P Anbalagan, Harshdeep Kamble, officers from other departments and a large number of unemployed youngsters.

An MIDC official said that since several lakhs of migrants have left for their home states, there are huge job opportunities now available for the local people in the state and the portal – – will match the job-seekers with the job-givers for mutual benefit.

Why Did Mobs Attack My House? : Bengaluru MLA Akhanda Srinivas Murthy

Murthy said he is a public servant who got elected after 1 lakh people voted for him.




Congress MLA Akhanda Srinivas

Bengaluru: After his house was attacked and burnt by the mob on Tuesday evening, Congress MLA Akhanda Srinivas Murthy on Thursday questioned why did the rioters target him.

“Why have they (mobs) attacked me? What have I done? If I have done any mistakes, they should go to the police,” Murthy told reporters here.

Incidentally, his family members were able to escape the mobs as they had stepped out of their home just a few minutes before the riots to attend Krishnashtami at a temple.

Murthy said he is a public servant who got elected after 1 lakh people voted for him.

He said all the people in his constituency of Pulikeshinagar were like his brothers.

The Congress leader said outsiders came and attacked his house and urged the police and government to investigate the matter.

According to Murthy, everything in his home is burned.

Horrifying images emerged from the politician house, rooms strewn with ashes and completely burnt household articles seen scattered on the floor.

Rooms in his house were all darkened by soot generated by the flames burning furniture, appliances, clothes and other household items.

Murthy took around some leaders and showed them the destruction his house has suffered.

He said the police should punish the person who posted the derogatory message, be it his nephew or anybody else as he again questioned why his house was attacked?

In addition to his house, Murthy said the vandals had also attacked the houses of some other people and their vehicles as well.

The MLA exhorted people to stay calm.

On Tuesday night, hundreds of people ran amok after Murthy’s nephew Naveen posted a derogatory message on social media.

The mobs pelted stones, injured 60 policemen, and committed acts of vandalism and arson in DJ Halli, KG Halli, Pulikeshinagar and Kaval Byrasandra areas, leaving the affected places resembling a warzone.
