Multinational companies in Karnataka will be asked to display on their premises the number of Kannadigas they employ, this is what state's culture minister Shivaraj Tangadagi said on Wednesday, in a move that is seen as controversial. Now, Information Technology Minister Priyank Kharge has pointed out there are already laws in the state to ensure employment is provided to those who have lost land for projects as well as to make sure Kannadigas get preference in employment. Bengaluru, a city to which people have flocked for jobs, education and opportunity has been known for the cosmopolitan culture that often frees middle-class migrants of any obligation to learn the local language. It's also the startup capital, the dream city for many engineering graduates from lower middle class and poor backgrounds aspire to live in. How, in that case, will a policy like this work? Will it breed more language pride or chauvinism? Does this move to benefit sons of the soil or daughters of the soil, infringe on an individual's rights to make a living where his or her merit is valued, or even the constitutional rights of employers? How will the courts look at it, remember courts have not been favourable towards States implementing domicile reservation in the job sector, let alone the politics of it. How will it affect the prospects of the brand Bengaluru?
