300 school cadets to be used for Independence Day Parade - CTU

The Ceylon Teachers' Union (CTU) has alleged that 300 school cadets are to be involved in training for the 73rd Independence Day Parade and this could put these children at risk.

CTU General Secretary Joseph Stalin said that the Secretary of the Education ministry too,  had initially objected to this.

He urges the government to give special attention to the matter.
