This attack was carried on June 5th while all the parents and teachers were agitating against the political interference carried out in Ashoka College, Colombo. Teachers and students are accusing the principal of being a henchman of the CM and destroying the school and its education.
Even though the principal was sacked on 26th February, he has been re-appointed on 6th June according to Joseph Stalin, the convener of Ceylon Teacher’s Association. He further added that this government gives more priority to their henchmen rather the future of the nation whom are innocent students. These corrupted politicians will go to any length to safeguard their ill interests such as carrying out punishment transfers to teachers and attacking the parents who question them.
