Eelam Peoples Democratic Party (EPDP) met with volunteer teachers at their Head Quarters in Jaffna located in the Sridhar theater Thursday morning and solicited their cooperation to do election propaganda on EPDP's behalf supporting the presidency of Mahinda Rajapakse, sources in Jaffna said.

The EPDP officials had promised permanent appointments to volunteer teachers if they help out their party during the elections.

Sources attending the meeting said that only a handful of volunteer teachers were present and they had explained the difficulties in participating in election work due to the prevailing political climate in Jaffna.

The meeting was held under heavy security and the participants were thoroughly searched before allowed entry into the office building, according to sources.
