The fast staged by unemployed the Aesthetic Graduates Association has been called off as a result of fruitful discussions.
Members of the Aesthetic Graduates Association requesting teacher appointments began a fast opposite the Education Ministry on Monday. Their only appeal was to grant appointments honouring a pledge given to them. They received a positive response to their request following discussions Deputy Minister P.B. Ekanayake had with the Association. Accordingly, its convener Sujith Muthukumarana said they decided to call off their fast.
