Karnataka panel wants 65% reservation for locals in IT sector [Trump effect?]

Five-member expert panel of Karnataka development authority have submitted a report that revisited a 30-year-old report on the issue to chief minister Siddaramaiah in which it recommended 100% reservation in blue collar jobs in the private sector for Kannadigas, who were either born in the state or have lived here for 15 years. 

The report also calls for 80% reservation for locals in clerical jobs, and 65% reservation in high-skilled or category ‘A’ jobs. [source]

We certainly hope that the government kills the bill before it kills the entire industry, unless they want to give in to vote politics (or rather, Trump effect?).
