Convener of the National People’s Council (NPC) Chameera Perera accuses the government of clandestinely attempting to sell the land premises on which the Devi Balika Vidyalaya is located.
Perera said that the government is clearly using the COVID19 epidemic to eclipse its moves in this regard.
He also said that the ‘Viyath-maga’ government comprising of so-called academics were oblivious to the value of education.
Speaking further the NPC Convener predicted that the land premises of the Devi Balika Vidyalaya would most obviously be sold over to either the Chinese or the Indians.
Perera said that the incumbent government was synonymous for its sale of prime land plots in Colombo, devoid of the public being aware of its motives.
A collective of past Principals, teachers and pupils of Devi Balika Vidyalaya in Colombo recently raised concerns over a decision to shift the school’s GCE Advanced Level science and math sections to the Sri Vijerama Maha Vidyalaya in Nugegoda.
The past principals, teachers and students claimed moves were in the offing to shift the science and math sections of the school to Nugegoda by July, guised as development.
However, they raised concerns, stating that the decision forecasts suspicious plans to shift the entire school to vacate the prime land in the heart of Colombo.
