Jobs for all unemployed graduates soon - President

All unemployed graduates in the country will be found employment under a programme implemented within the next three months, President Maithripala Sirisena said.

"The relevant interviews which were postponed due to the Local Government elections will also be held within the next two months," the President said.

The President disclosed this at a meeting at the Batticaloa Webber Stadium to mark the grant of teacher appointments to graduates in the Batticaloa District, on March 3.

A batch of 200 graduates and 40 diploma holders received teacher appointment letters at the ceremony. The President presented the appointment letters to 21 graduates and diploma holders to symbolise the event.

President Sirisena who said that the government's attention had been drawn towards implementing certain changes in the education system through new education policies and plans, remarked that graduates who were a valuable asset to the nation had been induced to participate in protest demonstrations due to various shortcomings and drawbacks in the education system.

The President said graduates would be recruited to the teaching profession as well as to fill vacancies in state and local institutions in the Eastern Province on an urgent basis.

The President said he would appoint two separate Presidential Task Forces to reactivate all development activities stalled due to the war situation in the North and East and he desired the active support and cooperation for this endeavour from MPs and ministers representing all political parties. The President emphasised that he would take action towards re-starting all stalled road development activities in the Eastern Province.

The President also handed over laboratory employment and tools to three schools under the programme to facilitate school laboratories in the Eastern Province.

Eastern Province Governor Rohitha Bogollagama, State Minisers M.L.A.M. Hisbullah and Siriyani Wijewickrema, Deputy Minister Ameer Ali, Parliamentarian Ali Zahir Moulana, Eastern Provincial Council Chairman Chandradasa Galappatthy, Eastern Provincial Council Chief Secretary Sarath Abeygunawardena and IGP Pujith Jayasundara were also present on the occasion.

President Sirisena later visited the Sri Mangalarama Viharaya in Batticaloa and called on the Viharadhipathi Ven. Ampitiye Sumanaratna Thera and inquired about his well-being. Thereafter, the President visited the Sri Mamanga Ishwara Kovil in Batticaloa and received blessings after participating in religious observances.

The President inspected the Mamanga Wewa situated near the kovil and directed the Eastern Province Governor who was on hand to take measures to launch renovation work on the wewa.

Subsequently, the President visited the Eastern Province Governor's official residence and planted a sapling in its compound to mark his visit.

President true to his promise handed over appointment letters, real and genuine action. So do to the promise of transfer of SAITM students to KDU rapidly, as we urge him to use his Executive powers again to iron out any differences that arise in the transfer as to "EQUATE BOTH GROUPS AS A ONE TIME ACT OF TRANSITIONAL JUSTICE" for a complete solution, leaving no room for dispute with GMOA/SLMC. We warn, GMOA will demand an unapproved, illegal, once failed, TWIN COURSE, sending unsuspecting, already locally approved SAITM students to Russia, with bribing to GMOA and its private medical school of many founders. Students will experience chaos only later, just like now.
