Actually Engineers can take sri lanka to wonder of Asia. Gvt should try to keep graduates in country without chasing them to Europe where they honored.

Since when any large scale recruitment was done state finance institutions. They are all run by rankers. If organisations are run by rankers alone organisations will start to stagnate. You need fresh creative minds to make organisations more dynamic. How to select these creative minds is a different matter. There were no recruitments done for technology and planning sectors of the government last 5-10. Even with no development this time span will create a lot vacancies due to retirement and brain drain to other countries. It is a fact that there will be more economic activities in the post war era. That gives a lot of opportunities skill people like engineers , agro specialists to contribute to the countries growth. I cant understand why some of our readers so pessimistic and antagonist. Is it because their party not doing it? Or couldn't do it.

A job is not a human right. It is not the State's duty to provide jobs for people. If you're unemployed, go out and find a job. Apply, face interviews and tests...and work hard.
