    Kick out the uneducated policemen and employ the unemployed graduates as officers in the police.

    There are thousands of opportunities out there. But you guys simply won't fit in. You just want 'Rajaye rekiya' ! Never to earn a decent living. Just to bluff saying you are a 'graduate' with a ba or bsc. Unfortunately now even potential arrange marriages won't fall for it.

    FREE EDUCATION, FREE BOOKS, FREE UNIFORMS, BURSARIES AND FREE GRANTS ( MAHAPOLA ) , AND THEN JOBS. NO OTHER COUNTRY ON EARTH IS DOING THIS.

    From where does the money come for the Free Education and at what cost? Do they get a return if investment?
