Gotabaya promises jobs for unemployed grads by January

All the unemployed graduates would be given jobs by next January. Thereafter, a systematic process would be launched to provide employment to all graduates as their knowledge and skills have to be utilised for the economic development of this country in both the state and private sectors, SLPP Presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa said at a public rally in Kurunegala on Sunday.

Some 54,000 graduates would be given jobs under this proposed programme immediately and 300,000 jobs will be created in the field of IT, he said.

“There is a need to update our educational curriculum to match the ever-increasing demands of the job market. I have already designed necessary plans for that. A member of every needy family in the country would be provided with a job to maintain their family and their talents and other skills would be considered,” Rajapaksa said.

SLFP General Secretary Dayasiri Jayasekara also spoke.
