A mother from Welegoda in Matara launched a fast-unto-death at the main entrance of the Sujatha Balika Vidyalaya urging the authorities to admit her daughter to the school. She told reporters that her child had been left without a school for more than nine months and pointed out that the distance from her home to the school was only 300 meters.

    Dear principal, how can you let a child stay at home for 9 months without allowing her to come to school ?

    What a pity. It is not acceptable at all. I hope all the relevant authorities to take action to admit the girl to the school.

    Parents who are dedicated to their children's studies need to be honoured. Glad to see that protests are being carried out for honourable reasons (take notes Mr. Politicians)
