The Ceylon Teachers Union (CTU) and parents have organized a protest campaign opposite the Meegasthanna Vidyalaya in Mathugama today (01).
The Union attributed the decision to engage in the protest citing the Principal of the school was allegedly assaulted by Deputy Minister Palitha Thewarapperuma yesterday (30).
Teachers and parents of students of the Meegasthanna Vidyalaya are due to also the protest.
Deputy Minister Palitha Thewarapperuma engaged in a protest for several days opposite the school demanding the admission of 10 students who were not granted admission to a school in the area.
Deputy Minister Thewarapperuma was admitted to the Kalutara Nagoda Hospital last evening after attempts to hang himself following the protest.
