The Unemployed graduates are to stage a demonstration tomorrow, Wednesday at 9.00 a.m. in front of Jaffna District Secretariat demanding “Employment to all graduates”. After we undertook a struggle continuously for 143 days we were promised that the graduates will be appointed as Development Assistants on training basis within this year and our struggle was abandoned on the basis of the said promise.
But, so far no action had been taken in this matter and hence we are undertaking this demonstration, said the graduates. During this demonstration, a memorandum with signatures of the graduates will be sent to the Prime Minister through the CM, GA and the Governor. Although memorandums were handed over to the President and the Prime Minister, no favourable answer was received by us.
In this context, we held a 48 hours struggle in front of the District Secretariat following by a 100 day continuous struggle, but gave it up without any results. We wish to say with much regret that we are in a distressing position of not being able to secure any employment as from 2012, they said..
