MIC to reel in youth with 2,000 jobs


Compiled by C. ARUNO, JUNAID IBRAHIM and R. ARAVINTHAN

MIC will work with the National Fisheries Board to create 2,000 job opportunities for Indian youth in the fishing industry, Makkal Osai reported.

MIC central working committee executive secretary and board member AK Ramalingan said currently only 400 Indians were involved in the industry nationwide.

“It’s more challenging now with fishermen having to venture to deeper seas due to declining fish stock. However, after being appointed to the board, understanding the challenges and discussions with MIC president Tan Sri S. Vigneswaran, we are ready to help Indian youth venture into the field.”

The two will also work to get the necessary assistance from the government for training and initial financial support.
