Horana PS Vice Chairman awards 35 schols

Thirty-five students were awarded scholarships at a ceremony organised by Horana Pradeshiya Sabha Vice Cahirman Ashoka Ranathugna on the initiative of Minister of Good Governance and Infrastructure Facilities, Ratnasiri Wickramanayaka and Kalutara District Parliamentarian Vidura Wickramanayaka. The scholarships were financed from the personal fund provided by the Vice Chairman.

Minister Wickramanayaka said: "Due to today's education system children are subject to various pressure. Today people are reluctant to ennage in self-employment.

They feel that those jobs are not respectable. Today, the rubber industry in our area is facing a critical labour problem. Some people don't like to do that type of jobs. These jobs provide economic benefits to the country. People need to understand this.

Kalutara District Parliamentarian Vidura Wickramanayaka said, "Nobody has the right to deprive children of their childhood. We enjoyed freedom during our childhood. But today, children don't enjoy that beautiful childhood. They are slaves to education. They don't have time even to play. Politicians of the past did not go by colours, political parties or groups. They were honest. Today things have changed.

Ingiriya Co-Operative Society Chairman Sunil Jayakody, Manager, People's Bank, Ingiriya, S. Wanniarachchi, Vice Cahirman, Horana Urban Council, Jaliya Kulasingha, students and a large number of people participated.
