Female Teachers in Jaffna Forced to Pay for and Wear Rajapaksa’s Party Colours

by

Female teachers in Jaffna are being forced to pay for and wear blue sarees, to represent the colours of the President’s political party, during Mahinda Rajapaksa’s Jaffna visit.

The teachers are having the cost deducted from their salaries, without any prior consultation.

Uthayan reports teachers as saying that at 2500 Rupees, the sarees cost far more than what they would usually pay for their work clothes and that the cost was too steep for something worn for one day.
