Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa said the education system must be overhauled, especially with regard to English language and other subjects such as Information Technology, Science, Mathematics, and Engineering.
He added that the Opposition is able to hold donation programmes such as ‘Vipakshayen Husmak’ and ‘Sakwala’ because it is not bankrupt like the Government.
“The Government does not want to accept that there are shortcomings and inadequacies in their proposals and policies. But we are different. The Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) will not betray the people,” he added.
Premadasa expressed these views, after attending a ‘Sakwala’ programme at Samudra Devi Balika Vidyalaya in Katugastota yesterday (16). Digital computer screens and computer equipment were donated for classrooms at a cost of nearly Rs 850,000.
