Sat, Nov 5, 2011, 09:43 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 05, Colombo: The Joint Association of Unemployed Graduates in Sri Lanka is to organize a series of continuous protests urging the government to provide employment to all unemployed graduates in the country.

The Association notes that the government has failed to honour its pledge to employ 14,500 graduates as Jana Sabha Secretaries and 30,000 graduates as development officers.

They have also noted that the government has also not made provisions in its Appropriation Bill for 2012 to grant employment to the unemployed graduates.

According to the Association, unemployed graduates from the North and East Provinces would also join the protest campaign.

The Unemployed Graduate's Association has called on the government to honour its promises to the graduates on providing employment.

Meanwhile, the Inter University Student's Federation (IUSF) also says that the government has not addressed the issues faced by the country's education sector and has actually cut the budget allocated for the sector.
