The students of the Sri Jayawardenapura University will hold a protest at noon today in front of the university. The Students Union says that the protest will be held against the dictatorial behaviour of the Vice Chancellor and in support of the three students of the University of Peradeniya who have been held in remand custody.

The University was closed down in the aftermath of a protest march organised by the students which caused heavy traffic in Colombo. (HF)

    i personally think the main problem in the higher education system is the free education. these students take the system for granted and never satisfied with what they get at the tax payers expense. doctors engineers and other professionals once they get their free education leave the country and then the government makes it difficult for students who get a degree at their parents to work in sri lanka. i think the universities should expel such student who engage and organize these protests and ban all political groups. government should charge students for their education and a select few should should be awarded scholarships. the money used to pay for these protesting students should be used to build schools provide them with better facilities. The only way a country develops is through education.

    Don't worry kalum SB and the clan have already taken all the necessary steps to wipe-out the free education. After that people like you will be very happy!

    These small percentage of student activists forcibly drag the innocent 1st years for these demonstrations.
    This is the truth.
    Otherwise why should the 1st years get involved in these. They have just started their semesters.
    Like big people they talk on TV and say that they never force students..
    All this is the work of JVP

    You think this stupid behaviour is a part of free education ? They will put more effort to study without wasting time like this, if their parents have to spend for their education.
