    Oh well... Now Udul is going to be a hero. Anyone who dies or is in prison is a hero for the JVP students... Sigh...

    You really have a warped mind. Youth worry about jobs after education. All jobs created by mega development projects go to Indian and Chinese workers, they will also run them while the people are taxed to pay for these for for generations to come.

    NISSANKA Saturday, 30 October 2010 05:59 AM

    No wonder decent people who can afford the money sent their children to overseas/private Unis. You are spot on Dr. this is the downside of free education. Earlier days at the Unis. students were taught social etiquette, manners, how to converse in English, how to handle fork and spoon. When all those socialists entered the Unis, those programmes were stopped because they r supposed to be western culture.

    It is great the news at week end. Very good step taken.

    gona Friday, 29 October 2010 07:24 AM

    Gosh four responses that actually favor the action taken and not accused MR and the Govt that it is against his HR and the the Judiciary is acting against the people.

    Bumblebee Friday, 29 October 2010 07:24 AM

    Free Education for Idiots? a severe punishment is the only answer!

    kapila Friday, 29 October 2010 10:09 AM

    He is the person..to make trouble... every body..

    paul Friday, 29 October 2010 07:25 AM

    All this started just because the studends booed SB at Peradeniya.It is quite similar to SF contesting MR at the presidential election. Next steps will follow in due course.

    nalaka pathirana Friday, 29 October 2010 07:29 AM

    Another real son of mother lanka arrested.thats same like Sarath Fonseka's case.

    Ravy Friday, 29 October 2010 07:29 AM

    It will not be long before Udul becomes a cabinet minister.
    Another WW in the making. The more noise you make, the higher you climb!

    Shantha Perera Friday, 29 October 2010 07:30 AM

    Good move !!!, you caught a small fish, but you have to catch
    BIG fish. put them in Jail for 50 years for the benifit of the nation as JVP is a destroying the country by opposing any moves by the government whether good or bad

    Prasanna Friday, 29 October 2010 07:33 AM

    Only those who live abroad or sent children abroad for studies know the value of "Free-Education". These opportunists don't understand that but using innocent students as Scape Goats to acheive their ends.

    sham Friday, 29 October 2010 10:19 AM

    JVP face.Trouble maker.For their own political advantage disrupting all innocent students.Good move taken up by Government.Its better to remove such type of trouble makers from state universities.

    net Friday, 29 October 2010 10:19 AM

    put this man in a den.. to give uni students some relief

    polkiccha Friday, 29 October 2010 07:37 AM

    well i really think the student's have lost it and on the way they have paved the way for Free educations funeral procession. and now UDUL is going to become IDUL.

    knight Rider Friday, 29 October 2010 07:38 AM

    they should also arrest the JVP for encouraging this whole madness.

    sham Friday, 29 October 2010 10:20 AM

    Yes.I totally agreed.

    Jumbuli Jumba Friday, 29 October 2010 07:42 AM

    This guy who was unsuccessful of becoming a dentist is now in desperation trying to mislead other raw students. Justice should be meted out to him appropriately.

    sham Friday, 29 October 2010 10:22 AM

    you should be a close relative of poor political minded JVP

    sham Friday, 29 October 2010 10:22 AM

    JVP justification.

    DIlan Friday, 29 October 2010 07:44 AM

    COMMENTERS: if you open your eye, you can clearly see there is an agenda going against university students. This is only one stage. Goverment is going to shut up every mouth which open against it. I am a MR fan. But I am sad what he and his SB is doing.

    Tissa De Silva Friday, 29 October 2010 03:13 PM

    To all the guys above,

    Total mishandling and messing-up in style.

    pandula Friday, 29 October 2010 07:58 AM

    I think most commenters are moulded by GOV media and never being to SL university. At least because of IUSF we got many facilities for our education system because if they are not demanding no one will give you. But the present trend is to reduce the voice of student to destroy the education system. So please school childeren must come forward to protect their brothers because their mind havent blinded with politics.

    Big picture Friday, 29 October 2010 08:00 AM

    This is to get everybody fed up of free education and opt the parents for private universities.

    ravi Friday, 29 October 2010 10:32 AM

    you should join him in jail

    Z Fernando Friday, 29 October 2010 10:33 AM

    This is not a punishment,this rascal will become a "HERO" by tomorrow morning

    Mr.Copycat Friday, 29 October 2010 10:35 AM

    nothing... will be another sick JVP-er

    Janaka Friday, 29 October 2010 08:05 AM

    MALUWA NAHINNE KATE NISA, this guy is provoking the students and adding pain to the parents by misleading students. We are paying tax for them to waste, even after the FREE education they migrate. We are the losers at the end, KEEP THIS PANDITHAYA LOCKED UP FOREVER, useless jokers.

    Taj Friday, 29 October 2010 08:06 AM

    Well done! He should be banned from the university.

    kari Friday, 29 October 2010 03:38 PM

    Pls send him to Amgoda

    jayawickrema Friday, 29 October 2010 08:14 AM

    Ranjith Friday, 29 October 2010 08:14 AM

    This is the stategy, dear.. Make a noise and get those trouble makers to the net. The strategy is correct and few thousands have to pay for majority of millions. The humble Ministers could not do in the past and the Spade will do it now. Later we can clear the spade just like SF. Use a proper tool for the job, dear! Wait and see few months.

    Keith Friday, 29 October 2010 08:14 AM

    Please Don't compare SF to this kind of idiot. He is all time hero.

    Ruwan Ferdinandez Friday, 29 October 2010 08:15 AM

    It is time we adopt alternative prisons, like boats. Because this guy needs to be boarded on a boat and sail away from our country's boundaries.

    tana Friday, 29 October 2010 10:46 AM

    This will increase the problems in universities. There will be thousands of students in streets next few days.It will fresh up the fight for free education

    Please don't insult Sarath Fonseka

    Amila Friday, 29 October 2010 08:16 AM

    This is the way to cut down free education.Govt is trying to destroy the universities and privatize them through giving a bad picture to the public. Nobody can open their mouths to protect the free education. This is the result if someone open his/her mouth against it.

    M.H. Mohd Friday, 29 October 2010 08:16 AM

    Good News.........Please dont release him as he is the main virus in univers.....go to hell udul..

    Dr I.M.C.Fernando. Friday, 29 October 2010 08:18 AM

    The Country will NEVER NEVER forget the extrajudicial killings of the YOUTH of the country perpetrated by the despicable JVP. Perhaps the country should rethink the whole question of Free Education. It appears nothing given free is appreciated !! The Police have made a good start. All JVP activists who cause problems should be rounded up and due process of the law enforced.

    J Friday, 29 October 2010 08:20 AM

    I dont think any progress to solve Uni proplem, this arrest increase unrest..

    TP Friday, 29 October 2010 10:52 AM

    That is a great decision taken by the government. He is a serious person similar to Prabakaran

    sup555 Friday, 29 October 2010 10:52 AM

    But don't ever forget this will not be a solution for this problem.

    Buddika117 Friday, 29 October 2010 10:53 AM

    Talking against UN's one side judgements is called patriotism..dnt mix it with this...UN is just a dancing doll of US..

    JVP Friday, 29 October 2010 10:56 AM

    thanks god. i hav ever heard best news folowing praba,s death. this bugger ghost of praba. he is one of de prabakarn who destroy whole university sys. pls giv him 2 death panelty

    RupasingheR Friday, 29 October 2010 08:31 AM

    Pandula, I was in the university and got the bitter experiance of IUSF ruining our lives and higher education. They have done nothing to the universities other than ruining faclities and students lives.

    sinha Friday, 29 October 2010 11:20 AM

    yes !!! our education is safe now !!! HANG HIM

    Ruwan Ferdinandez Friday, 29 October 2010 08:44 AM

    Did you enjoy free education? If did, do you now appreciate what you had? No, that's something we should talk about. If you didn't have free education from Sri Lanka.,your points are not valid. JVP is a rubbish pile and please don't mix up JVP and free education.

    srilal Friday, 29 October 2010 11:26 AM

    yes..good......put him jail for 2-3 years

    Nihal Fernando Friday, 29 October 2010 08:45 AM

    Can't expect any other sensible or appropriate answer from you.

    sena Friday, 29 October 2010 08:47 AM

    Well said pandula. We can see how childish & superficial some people think of these things. No analytical thinking. Just go by what media highlights which agiain vastly influenced by .........?. I am too a graduate & a postgraduate. I know very well if not for IUSF our free education (which millions of poor people benifit presently) is long gone as there were continues attempts to privatize it by many means under successive governments.

    jay Friday, 29 October 2010 11:29 AM

    i cant understand why this took this long.

    Yes , we should bring discipiline into universities, They have to sepend the time to empower them self with education and knowlege istead of tools of JVP , who is having a mind of destruction

    Perera Friday, 29 October 2010 08:59 AM

    At least now they should learn to get their priorities right... They are here to study.. "NIDAHAS ADDYAPANAYA" means everyone should have a right and freedom to do their studies. It's not meant to have everything free... You guys are wasting our tax money. Politics should be banned from universities. Please let our bright children to study without any disruptions.

    patriot Saturday, 30 October 2010 01:58 PM

    you are blind man. your folowers same thing open eyes. look world then you can see true.

    ajith Friday, 29 October 2010 09:06 AM

    Who ever disturbing and disrupting others should be arrested and punished.The rule should apply to the yellow robe students as well.

    Sue Friday, 29 October 2010 09:27 AM

    Arresting this guy is one thing because the govt. has a good reason to do so. Remember however that this could only be the start of opressing all other unions and anyone who goes against the govt.

    Mahmood Friday, 29 October 2010 12:47 PM

    My son can safely go back to university now. A good move. Why was it delayed for so long?
