A group of volunteer teachers from the Ampara and Trincomalee districts launched this Sathyagraha claiming that they had been engaged in teaching at schools in the Eastern province on volunteer basis for over 10 years and having even passed the interviews conducted by the provincial council over three months ago, The governor had still not taken measures to grant them their appointments.

The protestors demanded that the government expedite the appointments of the 456 volunteer teachers among them, warning that if the government fails to do so, a reasonable explanation should be given.
