Northern governor orders schools to remain open, despite Tamil calls for protest

Sri Lanka's Northern Province governor, Suren Raghavan, has ordered the authorities to keep schools in the North open tomorrow.

Politicians requested schools to close in support of a major rally in Jaffna tomorrow, which has been organised by the Tamil People’s Council. The Jaffna rally is being staged to demand the authorities to address issues and concerns of Tamil people in the North and East.

The Northern Provincial Education Ministry announced that all schools in the Northern Province will remain functional on Monday.
