Minister of Information and Mass Media and Minister of Higher Education, Technology and Innovation Dr. Bandula Gunawardena requested the graduates, who did not receive their appointment letters for the graduate trainee program, to send in their appeals to the President Secretariat via their respective divisional secretariats.
The applicants should attach the photocopies of the original applications they sent by post or email along with the appeal, Dr. Gunawardena also said.
