New Year message of the JVP

Let’s make 2014 an auspicious New Year!

This is the pathetic situation Mahinda Rajapaksa family rule has dragged the country towards and 2014 would never be an auspicious new year.

Two foolish acts would never make a wise move

A communiqué issued by the JVP states Minister Bandula Gunawardene’s idea to scrap the scholarship examination is similar to a thought that two foolish acts would make one intelligent move. The statement issued on the move to scrap the scholarship examination is fully reproduced here:

A tense situation, especially among parents of small children, cropped up immediately after Minister Bandula Gunawardene held a media conference on the 19th to announce that Grade 5 scholarship examination would be abolished from 2016.
