SLFGA requests special commision

President Maithripala Sirisena who is on a State visit to South Korea, received a Guard of Honour, in which Korean soldiers in current and traditional military uniforms presented arms.

The Sri Lanka Freedom Graduates' Association (SLFGA) urged the President to appoint a special commission to accelerate the process of providing employment opportunities for unemployed graduates, yesterday.

Addressing the media yesterday at the SLFP Headquarters, SLFGA Chief Secretary Manula Chamal Perera said that the National Policies and Economic Affairs Ministry called for applications five to six months before claiming that they were going to recruit 20,000 new development assistants, but the process is slow. Anura Kumara Perera of Sri Lanka Freedom Development Assistants Association also urged the government to take necessary measures to solve the issued faced by graduates who have already been recruited for public service.

He added that the development assistants who have been recruited to engage in government development activities, have to face various difficulties since their institution heads are assigning duties outside the service constitution, breaching the circulars issued by the Secretaries of the Public Administration and Home Affairs Ministries. He further said that various decisions had been taken with regard to this during a meeting held with the President, and that those decisions have not been practiced yet.
