forward to Related News Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan raised many hackles with his demand for affirmative action or job reservations for Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe candidates in the private sector He suggested that “providing quota in private jobs will help cool down anger among SC and STs” thereby stemming the rise of Maoist militancy among them He observed that the lands of these vulnerable communities “are being snatched away This land has gold and coal beneath it You dig it out and shoo them away The youth then take up the wrong path” The merit of the minister’s line of reasoning is that at least it recognises that Maoist militancy is not just a security challenge but results from deeply embedded socio-economic causes He is also probably correct in his assumption that a major reason for mounting discontent among young people is because they have no jobs and future to look forward to But the reasons for young people taking up arms in these impoverished regions are wide-ranging Unaddressed is the profound agrarian crisis caused by abysmally low public investments in dry-land agriculture and farmer income protection failures of land reforms promotion of unsustainable high-cost risky agricultural technologies the ecological degradation of the countryside decline and dispossession from forests contraction of rural credit and many other causes In tribal areas the penetration of large corporations that tend to be predatory extractive and exploitative further fuels the crisis These together contribute to despair and discontent in India’s countryside This manifests itself in farmer suicides endemic hunger mass annual distress migration the violent Patidar and Jat job reservation agitations and in some regions in Maoist militancy the last of these aggravated by human rights violations by counter-militancy security operations However independent of whether or not it would help allay the attraction of dispossessed young Dalit and tribal people to militant ideologies the case for affirmative action in the private sector for SCs and STs must be considered on its own merit There is a colossal unprecedented and ever-mounting crisis of employment for the young in India today Every month a million new persons are joining India’s workforce and there are hardly any jobs for them in either the public or private sector As NC Saxena points out the total number of government staff including Central and state governments PSUs and local bodies is less than 14 per cent of the population against the global average of over 3 per cent Second the number has been going down over the years falling from 1913 million in 2000-01 to 1760 million in 2011-12 One consequence of this failure is that we have far too few teachers health workers and child carers to run our social services The hopes of young people are shifting therefore to the private sector In this background I do believe that at a time when the few jobs that are being created are in the private sector and there is wide evidence of the bias shown by this sector against employing youth from socially discriminated categories there is a strong case for job reservations But let us remember that only around 8 per cent of jobs are generated in the formal sector of which more than half are in the public sector; therefore this measure even if implemented would still touch only the fringe of the problem There is today incontrovertible evidence that the current growth model built on large private investments is unable to generate jobs Coen Kompier writing for the Centre for Equity Studies’ India Exclusion Report demonstrates that only 27 million jobs were added in the high-growth period from 2004-10 compared to over 60 million during the previous five-year period Growing millions of young people find no future in agriculture and there are few non-agricultural livelihoods available in rural India The Socio-Economic Caste Census showed that more than 55 per cent of rural households possess no land and are forced to survive exclusively by distress manual labour Marginal and small farmers are not much better off Most of them are reduced to footloose migrants travelling working and surviving under conditions of great hardship away from their homes Young people today desperately long to escape the drudgery and hunger that entrapped their parents A promise that helped Narendra Modi win the 2014 election was that he would help create jobs for millions of India’s teeming youth However the course correction he offered was to steer India back to policies of “reform” of the high-growth years of the previous government untrammelled by blockages of red and green persuasions of left and environment champions But he ignored that the reality of what had been accomplished in the years of highest economic growth in India was the accelerated expansion of wealth certainly not the expansion of decent work for India’s poor Employment in the organised sector actually went down after 1997 while that in the unorganised sector rose Massive public investments in agriculture and rural job creation would help create enormous local markets that could spur jobs and demands from below Huge expansions in the broken school higher and technical education and health and child care services would not just generate jobs but also render youth entering work more productive and equipped with marketable skills But there are no signs of any of this happening even in the distant horizon Without changing course drastically we will continue to profoundly fail our young with both tragic and explosive outcomes Mander is a human rights worker and writer For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express AppBy: Express News Service | Published: July 29 2014 12:26 am Related News With the establishment of a Central ministry for skill development and entrepreneurship the Narendra Modi government has gone into silobreaking mode This is welcome The move wrests the core elements of the prime minister’s vision for growth from various ministries and pools them under one minister Sarbananda Sonowal and under one budget which could be in the region of Rs 25000 crore Negotiations had begun in June with almost two dozen ministries and most of them had apparently objected to losing their turf However it is time to consolidate the numerous skilling initiatives taken by various ministries and institutes The National Policy on Skill Development declared a training capacity of only 31 million This year the National Skill Development Agency set a higher target of 73 million But the economies of scale and unified vision which must result from consolidation would be required to meet even the UPA government’s goal of skilling 500 million workers by 2022 Indeed the target would have to be escalated if growth accelerates the exodus from agriculture Rapid skilling is essential if India is to convert what has been described as a population problem into a demographic dividend Fast-growing economies require the highly skilled in far greater numbers than the highly educated Besides skilling addresses the social problem of the highly educated but unemployed a familiar phenomenon for several decades India has one of the world’s biggest workforces but the proportion of qualified skilled labour is quite small and the primary opportunity could lie in certification For now far too much of young India learns on the job It learns well but lacks the stamp of authority and languishes in low-paid jobs or in the informal sector Apart from the obvious goal of training the wholly unskilled the new ministry should give some thought to certifying the armies of the irregularly skilled who form the backbone of unorganised manufacturing Several trades like those of machinists and carpenters would benefit from certification and jobs and assured incomes — even dollar incomes — would follow However skilling on a national scale preparing workers for both Indian and international markets requires centralised oversight and unified vision The purpose would have been indifferently served by training bodies under diverse ministries It is time for a grand unification For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express Web Desk | Derby | Updated: July 20 2017 9:55 pm Harmanpreet Kaur

five questions to all MLAs in Gujarat including Chief Minister Anandiben Patel seeking their opinions Vanani had received the Samiti’s letter on May 4 In his reply received by the Samiti members Tuesday night Vanani — Minister of State for Sports and Youth Cultural Activities and MLA from Katargam in Surat — also listed five questions for the outfit Share This Article Related Article Vanani’s replies to the five questions were: 1) Patidar community demanding reservation is genuine or not The minister answered “yes and no” because the use of reservation for “a competent person or a community results into more loss than gain” 2) Your opinion on the incident that took place at GMDC ground on August 25 2015 He said there was no appropriate reason for continuing the rally after 5 pm “The activities of agitating leaders after 500 was non-democratic and to spread violence The agitating leaders are responsible for the outbreak of violence on 25th August night in which innocent youths had sacrificed their lives” 3) The state government had not taken any step against police action Your opinion The minister replied: “The agitating leaders should first clear their stand as till 500 pm everything went peaceful and after that without permission they continued to stay in the ground which led to the outbreak of violence and decided not to leave the ground If a fruit is sour in taste than not to blame fruit but its sour seed is responsible for that in this way the community had to bear the sour seed of agitating leaders had sowed sour seeds and now the community is suffering” 4) Your opinion on the sedition charges levelled by the state government Vanani said the court has to take a decision and I don’t want to comment on it 5) If you have made any representations to the state government He answered “After indepth study of advantages and disadvantages of reservation I came to a conclusion that disadvantages are more than advantages for a competent community I understand that such representations should not be made The agitating leaders are responsible for all the incidents across the state due to their malintentions… The question of making representations to the state government does not arise Still the government has withdrawn majority of the cases” In the letter Vanani has requested the Samiti to answer five questions which “came in his mind while reading the letter” The questions were: 1) Whether the Patidar community is carrying out the agitation in support of the demand for reservation The agitation has been started by the Patidar community but whether it is for the betterment of the community 2) The agitation is non-political Who had given certificate of it The Samiti leaders have not given any assurance that in future they would stay away from political parties or fight elections The Jan Lokpal agitation started by Anna Hazare was earlier termed non-political but later we have experienced that the motive behind it was political 3) Is there fear poverty and corruption like situation prevailing in the state 4) What difficulties a common man faces to live 5) Is the condition of farmers is not good Later

from Lala Lajpat Rai Marg to the shrine runs into the same problems encountered by visitors to several other famous places of worship Those headed to the Haji Ali dargah which sees around 20000 visitors daily cannot really avoid the aggressive chadar sellers along the causeway The chadar is the cover sheet for the tomb comprising flowers or cloth an offering followed at several dargahs The vendors of the offering positioned along the causeway not only call out to prospective customers but also sometimes grab devotees by the hand hoping to make a sale The intense competition among the several chadar stalls is a daily nuisance for visitors “All places of worship are surrounded by shops selling religious items These shopkeepers can get aggressive But holding a person’s hand and forcibly stopping him is taking it too far They should respect the holiness associated with the place” said Fazlur Rahim a Hyderabad resident who came to the city with his family to meet his relatives
