Unemployed Graduates Issue Ultimatum to President

By Nirmala Kannangara - The Combined Association of the Unemployed Graduates (CAUG) have warned the government of consequences if it fails to honour promises given to the unemployed graduates.

Acting Convener CAUG Chanaka Bandara told The Sunday Leader that President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s failure to honour his election pledge to absorb the country’s unemployed graduates to the public sector over the past four years will lead to a trade union action.

“From 2005 up to last year the President said that the government has made an action plan to absorb the unemployed graduates into the public sector, but instead have given that opportunity to his party supporters but not to those who are affiliated to other political parties,” Bandara said.

He further said that the CAUG has given November 13 as a deadline to the government to address graduate unemployment in the country or face consequences.
