Chief Minister said on Saturday that even if is given to all the communities, the government cannot give jobs to 90 percent of the unemployed youth.

"Even if is given to all the communities, the government cannot give jobs to 90 percent of youth. The private sector is expanding and it is in here only that maximum opportunity is available," said on Friday.

"Government can give 25 thousand jobs per year and this is equivalent to the number of those who are longing for jobs in a single Tehsil. is not a solution to the problem," said

He said that when people will get an opportunity in various sectors then slowly and gradually importance of reservation will get over.

"Those who get reservation say that they have a right. This can give temporary satisfaction but for finding the true solution we must utilise the opportunities and work for the society. When people will get an opportunity in various sectors then the importance of reservation will slowly fade away. Then only those who really deserve will get the reservation," he said.

On November 30, Governor C Vidyasagar Rao signed the Maratha Reservation Bill that proposed 16 percent reservation for Marathas under educationally and socially backward category.

On November 18, the government cabinet had approved the Bill for which the community had been protesting since 2017.
