    It is high time that the government to have a referendum on this. Surely the general public will decide to have private medical Universities. Students along cannot decide the educational policy required for the country.

    For or against OK to protest. worry is political parties involving the students for own political ends may end up in sacrificing some like in 71 and 89. parents beware. We pray there is no blood letting via DM Android App

    Pure jealousy Sri Lanka style. They are trying now itself to limit doctors numbers and keep their share of private practice.

    these students are becoming a menace to society, the main cause is that these people are abusing the free education paid for by the tax payer.
