UP BJP welcomes Opposition MLAs to win their seats

Lucknow, Nov 26 | UP BJP welcomes Opposition MLAs to win their seats. The Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) in Uttar Pradesh has started making inroads into the 78 seats that it lost to Opposition parties in 2017, by welcoming legislators who had won on these seats into the party fold.

The party is determined to fulfil its ‘Mission 300 Plus’ and is leaving no stone unturned to achieve the target.

For instance, the five seats where the securities of BJP candidates were forfeited are — Gauriganj, Sahaswan, Sadabad, Soraon, and Rae Bareli Sadar.

The BJP has already welcomed the sitting Rae Bareli legislator Aditi Singh into its fold. Aditi Singh’s father, late Akhilesh Singh wielded considerable influence in the region and she rode to victory in 2017 on this strength. The BJP is confident that she will retain the seat and add it to the saffron kitty.

BSP’s Ramvir Upadhyay, who defeated the BJP in Sadabad seat in Hathras in 2017, has also joined the BJP and will be the party’s candidate in the upcoming elections.

Rakesh Pratap Singh of Samajwadi Party had won the Gauriganj seat in Amethi.

He recently resigned from the membership of the state Assembly, citing lack of development in the area.

There have been speculations that he is now preparing to join the BJP ‘for the sake of development in his constituency.’

Vandana Singh, BSP MLA from Sagdi seat in Azamgarh, has also joined the saffron party earlier this week.

Subhash Pasi, SP MLA from Saidpur in Ghazipur, has also joined the BJP and is preparing to contest under the saffron banner.

“We are focussing on seats where we had lost and if the sitting MLAs of these seats want to join our party, we have no objections. The screening committee will clear their candidature and they can join us,” said a senior party functionary.

The BJP is particularly eyeing the SP MLAs, some of whom may be denied tickets by their party as the seats will be given away to allies.

An SP MLA said: “I have come to know that my seat is being taken by RLD and so I cannot sit back for the next five years. I am planning to join the BJP if all modalities are worked out.”

Does MBA really help in getting a better job offer ?

Does MBA really help in getting a better job offer ?

Most students pursuing an MBA come with the sole objective of having a decent job offer or a promotion in the existing job soon after completion of the MBA. And most of them take loans to pursue this career dream. According to a recent survey by education portal Campusutra.com  74% MBA 2022-24 aspirants said they would opt for education loans.

There are exceptional cases like those seeking master’s degree or may have a family business to take care of or an entrepreneurial venture in mind. But the exception cases are barely 1%. For the rest 99%, a management degree is a ticket to a dream job through campus placements or leap towards career enhancements. Stakes are high as many of them quit their jobs which essentially means loss of 2 years of income, apprehension and uncertainty of the job market. On top of that, the pressure to pay back the education loans. Hence the returns have to be high. There is more than just the management degree. Colleges need to ensure that they offer quality management education which enables them to be prepared for not just the demands of recruiters and for a decent job but also to sustain and achieve, all along their career path.

  • So, what exactly are the B Schools doing to prepare their students for the job market and make them industry ready ?
  •  Are B schools ready to deliver and prepare the future business leaders to cope up with the disrupted market ?  

These are the two key questions every MBA aspirant needs to ask, check and validate before filling the MBA application forms of management institutes. And worth mentioning that these application forms do not come cheap. An MBA aspirant who may have shortlisted 5 B Schools to apply for, may end up spending Rs 10,000.00 to Rs 15,000.00 just buying MBA / PGDM application forms.

While internship and placements data of some management institutes clearly indicates that recruiters today have specific demands. The skill sets looked for are job centric and industry oriented. MBA schools which have adopted new models of delivery and technology, redesigned their courses, built an effective evaluation process and prepared the students to cope with the dynamic business scenario, have done great with campus placements despite the economic slow down.

However, the skill set being looked for by a consulting company like Deloitte or KPMG may be quite different from FMCG or a manufacturing sector. Institutes need to acknowledge this fact and act accordingly.

  • Management institutes should ensure that students are intellectually engaged, self motivated and adapt to changes fast. In one word ‘VUCA ready’.
  • B Schools should encourage students to participate in national and international competitive events, simulations of business scenarios.
  • Institutes should have the right mix of faculty members with industry exposure and pure academics.

The placement records of 2021 across top management institutes indicated the fact that recruitment is happening, skilled talent is in demand and certain management institutions continued to attract recruiters even in the middle of an ongoing crisis.

It is time, all management institutes rise to the occasion, understand market realities and identify areas of improvement at both ends – students and faculty.

After all, the stakes are high at both ends. B Schools taking corrective measures will stay while those which are lagging will end up shutting down.
