Four students of the Peradeniya University were remanded for two weeks today for holding the Higher Education Minister S.B. Dissanayake under siege during his visit to the university premises about two months ago.
Inter University Students Federation (IUSF) Convener Udul Premaratne said that the students had appeared before the Kandy Magistrate Courts today. The students had been charged under the anti-ragging act for holding the Higher Education Minister S.B. Dissanayake under siege.
I agree fully with you. First they should learn how to behave and become good citizens.

Chrged under the anti-ragging act. That means minister agreed that he was ragged. What a joke. When the govt want to charge its opponent any non-relevant charge they will use lowering the standard of judiciary. No doubt this is the miracle of Asia.

Congratulations Mr. minister for using a language that can be understood both by the decent students as well as the thugs in the campuses who had been bulling the innocent all these years.

By the way, does this Udul somebody have any time for doing his studies? Or is he interrupting other students out of jealousy?

way to go SB!!! teach them a lesson. they learn from the money of poor people.. still they try to be the gangsters in sri lanka. 1st they should learn how to behave.. These students are very bright and good disciplinary students during the school time.. Most of the students go for the protest because they have no options. Good action sir. All srilankan will back u up.
