Basil wants 15,000 trainee graduates to undergo ‘leadership training’ by SL military

[TamilNet, Monday, 29 April 2013, 23:08 GMT]
SL presidential sibling and Economic ‘Development’ minister of Colombo, Basil Rajapaksa has instructed his officials to send 15,000 graduates, who were employed as ‘trainees’ under his ministry in 2012, for a 2-weeks obligatory ‘leadership training’ with the Sri Lankan military this year. As the new students to the universities who fail to attend the military programme losing their university education, the graduates employed as ‘trainees’ are at the risk of losing the opportunity for permanent employment if they refuse to attend the leadership training by the SL military, civil sources in Colombo said.

The training for the first batch is to commence on 08 May at Oluvil, Vavuniyaa and Anuradhapura.

Followed by the trainee graduates under the SL development ministry, more than 50,000 graduates, recently employed as trainees in the public sector would be subjected to undergo the same ‘leadership’ training with the SL military.

All the trainee graduates, except the pregnant mothers, are to be instructed to take part in the obligatory training programme, the sources further said.
