Tue, Feb 26, 2013, 08:53 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 26, Colombo: A group of graduate teachers in Sri Lanka today carried out a protest in Colombo demanding permanent employment.

The graduate teachers, still awaiting employment held a protest outside the Western Province Chief Minister's office.

The protesters charged that the government had failed to provide permanent employment for graduate teachers who had taken the final examination in 2011.

However, the government last year granted employment to some graduate teachers, but there are still thousands waiting to be employed.
