Water cannons and tear gas had to be used to disperse a group of protesting teachers and principals in front of the Ministry of Education in Battaramulla a short while ago, the Police said.

They said the traffic had been blocked both ways on the road in front of the Ministry (D P Wijesinghe Mawatha). Motorists are advised to use alternative routes to avoid traffic congestion.

The protest, launched by the Ceylon Teachers Services Union (CTSU) and the Principal Services Union in front of the Ministry of Education (MoE) in Battaramulla this morning, demanded the Government to clear salary anomalies and to pay the arrears.

    Today is a school day! What are they doing on the streets. They should be happy to be treated with a cool jet of water on a hot afternoon. What they deserve is buckets of excrete.

    Most of the cases are inefficient school clerks in educational office. I personally hand over documents for them in 2017. But when checking last week they said not received. Smart technology need to implemented.
