    We thank Minister Basil for his effort to settle this BIG ISSUE. Else it would have been a chaos and shame for the country.

    Good! keep to your word now!

    These snippet-like reports do not say much but they tend to stir the pot vigorously.

    darren Thursday, 11 October 2012 10:56 AM

    Very commendable.We salute sir

    Sensationalism seems to be the buzz word of the day. As Gadzooks mentioned, sets everything seething.

    FUTA, is it ???

    Sumithi Thursday, 11 October 2012 11:01 AM

    At any cost? Irrespective of the Expenditure? Then HOW can the Strike continue? I know for sure UniMora Lecturers will not settle for mere salary increase..

    Higher education of quarter year is completely ruined and spoiled Hon.Minister has to take complete responsible for this disaster.

    leelananda Thursday, 11 October 2012 11:40 AM

    FUTA got nothing but promises.

    priyan Thursday, 11 October 2012 11:53 AM

    You have to drag because of SB and few fellows on your side, who do not want to discuss FUTA proposal constructively. They also want to win politically by crushing trade unions.

    lalith Thursday, 11 October 2012 11:55 AM

    Be the Minister of Education and Higher education and show you can do the job because both ministers responsible have failed.

    Lal Thursday, 11 October 2012 12:21 PM

    Do not get excited please! Wait until these promises are truly converted into reality.

    FUT(A)ILE exercise ?

    Mavan Dasanayake Friday, 12 October 2012 03:19 AM

    Just dont think twice. It is hard to convince the government and the people of Sri Lanka. Uni lecturers if you can just leave this country and there you will be happy. I dont think this country need educated people. They need rural folks who says yes to anything.

    piss Thursday, 11 October 2012 01:09 PM

    Throw that Simply Barking guy away and take over the ministry.

    vijay Thursday, 11 October 2012 01:14 PM

    A welcome change from a politician to accept his part of fault.

    Big Ears Thursday, 11 October 2012 01:53 PM

    Not with GCE(OL). Ha!
