Suryapet: Huzurnagar MLA Shanampudi Saidi Reddy on Thursday said private industries should provide 70 per cent of the jobs to the local youth.
The MLA was speaking at a public hearing conducted by the Pollution Control Board on increase in production capacity of Nagarjuna Cement factory at Mattampally in the district.
Saidi Reddy said PCB officials should inform the elected representatives and local leaders when they plan public hearings on any industry. In addition to providing jobs to locals, the industries should extend 70 per cent of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) funds to gram panchayats in the area. He also urged Nagarjuna Cements to reopen ITI college run by them that will help local students to pursue job-oriented courses.
He said private companies should repair roads damaged due to plying of their trucks and lorries, besides taking up social service activities particularly related to health and education. Industries located in the area would also be helpful in making Huzurnagar an IT hub, he said.
Additional District Collector Mohan Rao and officials of Pollution Control Board attended the meeting.
