Will not absorb recruits of ‘100,000 jobs scheme’ into health service – President

President Gotabaya Rajapaksa says those who have been recruited under the ‘100,000 employment opportunities programme’ will not be absorbed in to the cadre of the Department of Health Services.

The notion is being circulated that these employees will be attached to the health service as permanent staff is completely inaccurate, President stated.

He made these remarks in response to statements made by representatives of trade unions affiliated to Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) who had a discussion with the President at the Presidential Secretariat yesterday (February 23).

The objective of the 100,000 employment opportunities programme is to provide jobs for unskilled individuals without any formal or professional education, the President said.

They were selected from underprivileged families in order to eliminate poverty among them, he added.

The President noted that measures will be taken to provide training to the selected candidates under labour, sanitary and machinery worker categories that exist in various government institutions including hospitals and schools. Subsequent to the training period they will be offered permanent positions.

However, they will not be absorbed into the health service, the President clarified.
