President Gotabaya Rajapaksa decided to re-commence, without delay, the programme to provide employment opportunities to 150,000 persons that was halted due to the General Election.
According to the President’s Media Division, the number of unemployed graduates to be recruited is 50,000. For the remaining 100,000 jobs, candidates will be selected from families of the lowest strata of income earners in the society.
The programme to employ 50,000 graduates and 100,000 low-income earners was formulated within weeks after President Rajapaksa assuming office in November last year.
