Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, while speaking at a programme on skill development for youth in Bhopal, was of the view that the engineering colleges in the state should be shut down as maximum numbers of engineers fail to get jobs.

Singh said, The mushrooming of engineering colleges in India has led to lakhs of people, who have engineering degrees, wait in queues for a peon’s job. Whats the use of such engineering colleges when youngsters who pass out remain unemployed I suggest that engineering college owners should consider shutting their colleges and instead open industrial training institutes (ITIs), to be more successful,

The chief minister said that students with technical training like that of a motor mechanic could get a job more easily than someone who possesses mere bookish knowledge. The Opposition, who criticised Chouhans statements, was of the view that the latter lacked vision.

Bhopal, which has more than 100 private engineering institutions, has of late emerged as an educational hub in the last two decades. Ajay Singh, senior Congress leader, said that it was because of these multiple engineering colleges that students from rural areas and other states come to study. The Vyapam scam has already affected youths. The situation of government schools in Madhya Pradesh is pathetic and now, the CM wants all engineering colleges to shut. The BJP wants to destroy the education system in MP by doing this, said Singh.

Chouhan, who was speaking during the launch of Rozgar Ki Padhai – Chalein ITI? campaign in Bhopal, said, The government in the future would focus on skill development and would increase the seats in ITIs across Madhya Pradesh. Also, introduction of new courses at these industrial training institutes would ensure youngsters acquire skills to make them employable.

Narhari Zirwal – the Deputy Speaker in Maharashtra Assembly – on Saturday (June 25) issued disqualification notice to 16 rebel Shiv Sena MLAs.

The MLAs, who are being led by Eknath Shinde, are currently staying at Guwahati in Assam. These MLAs are supposed to file their written replies by 5:30 pm on Monday (June 27).  If the MLAs are disqualified, Shinde will lose his legislator’s post and that, crucially, will see his revolt fail.

The Shiv Sena had moved the original notice against 12 rebel MLAs, including Shinde, late Thursday evening and added another four names on Friday.

Rebel Shiv Sena MLA Deepak Keserkar said: “Our group will be called Shiv Sena Balasaheb. We will not merge with any party.” Kesarkar has also hinted at a possible alliance with the BJP. “We have only two options remaining in Maharashtra; to go with either the NCP-Congress or the BJP, otherwise the government cannot be formed. However, the question of allying with the BJP will be decided by Eknath Shinde. Whatever decision he takes, we will support it.”

Meanwhile Maharashtra Congress leader Ashok Chavan said: “Until it gets legal authorisation from the speaker, such type of groups will not be authorized.”
