A tense situation prevailed at the Lahugala Viharamahadevi Primary School in Ampara yesterday when Eastern Province Governor Mohan Wijewickrama visited the school to look into shortcomings there.
The Governor was warmly welcome by the parents and students but when he announced that the students must go to the Lahugala Old Govipala School for grade two from next year, the parents ran amok and objected to it.
The Governor and Lahugala Pradeshiya Sabha opposition leader Raween Niroshan who was also present were rescued to safety by the police amidst protests by parents. (Wasantha Chandrapala)

Makes sense to have fewer schools with better quality education but it should have been handled in a better manner by the Governor. This bull-in-a-china-shop attitude does not work.

There is a worthy course for some one to self immolate...if at all for that to be justified.
