    How can this guy still be a uni student? and are the uni students so blinded by these guys?

    RF Tuesday, 30 November 2010 11:46 AM

    Why not extend till April 24th so that he can spend the Sinhalese New Year also in the prison....

    Ruwan Wednesday, 01 December 2010 05:13 AM

    Let him rot in the jail cell, so others can learn

    knight rider Tuesday, 30 November 2010 11:54 AM

    keep him there forever its good for the higher education system.

    spark Tuesday, 30 November 2010 11:55 AM

    This guy has all the features of becoming a very promising politcian because (a) good for nothing in his younger days (b) manipulating everyone around him for his benefit (c) after many years in a position, does not have anything proud achieved (d) interacting with every tom dick and harry to survive (e) doesnt have any money, nor earned any truthfully.

    PWC Tuesday, 30 November 2010 11:56 AM

    How do you know ?? If the government let him study for some more years, defenetly lose thousand of graduates for SL, that's for sure.

    I Hussein Wednesday, 01 December 2010 05:42 AM

    Kanthi, you are right but in Udul's case he (and his clan) is a menace which subotage & geopardize future of many students.

    Nad Tuesday, 30 November 2010 12:12 PM

    Bloody good....

    You made your comment not considering the correct ground situation.
    Majority who commented against him including me is from Local Universities.

    Shiyaz Tuesday, 30 November 2010 12:27 PM

    Mr Kumara, because of people like Upul, we had to pay heavy for the foriegn unis'... So called IUF convener is a scare crow of jeppos... So as long as Upul is behind the bars, that the best era for the uni students & the youths in SL. its common most of the Local Graduates [not all] are selfish, they are really worried about their demand, if the private unis come to SL...
    @ pbj : its not only Upul did this, aslso the student who are inspired by Upul... So ultimately Upul is the culprit...
    and its sooo peaceful when Upul is behind teh bars...

    Ruwan Ferdinandez Tuesday, 30 November 2010 12:36 PM

    His style ain't suitable for anybody.

    Ariya Wednesday, 01 December 2010 07:32 AM

    Yes, its OK for him to be there...

    CONCORS Tuesday, 30 November 2010 12:55 PM


    Ariya Wednesday, 01 December 2010 07:34 AM

    Can they take Somawansa and Tilwin too?

    Ariya Wednesday, 01 December 2010 07:36 AM

    LTTE is finished and it is TIME for JVP too!

    udesh Tuesday, 30 November 2010 02:00 PM

    @ pbj why should any sane person protest on the establishment of private universities? Udul and the rest should be remanded for wasting public money!!!

    Samuel Tuesday, 30 November 2010 02:17 PM

    Best News Today. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. Please keep him in the cell and throw the key away.

    Bridie Tuesday, 30 November 2010 03:15 PM

    You meant, all of a sudden Udul became the champion of SL Education? I say this is heights of malnutrition. The body grows faster than the brain! Have a life for a change and hope that the authorities will not release the social evils like Udul for at least a few more New Years!

    Saradial Wednesday, 01 December 2010 09:17 AM

    Happy new year for all University Students

    high rated Tuesday, 30 November 2010 03:56 PM

    you mean not graduated in the measurement of length in the depth of a grave

    high rated Tuesday, 30 November 2010 03:59 PM

    you mean not graduated in the measurement of depth in a grave.

    wisdom Tuesday, 30 November 2010 04:06 PM

    do you mean not graduated in the measurement of depth in a grave having not achieved professionally productive placement.

    dpl Tuesday, 30 November 2010 04:09 PM

    you are not above the law. you have face court case .very good chance for jail

    Ampare son Tuesday, 30 November 2010 04:33 PM

    Keep him life time and followers too.

    Thirucumaran Tuesday, 30 November 2010 05:01 PM

    Very good....a better idea is to make him part of the permanent staff of the Prison so that he will never come out!!!

    Ruwan Ferdinandez Tuesday, 30 November 2010 05:33 PM

    Completely wrong! ost are local graduates. I graduated twice locally!

    Viraj Jay Tuesday, 30 November 2010 05:40 PM

    serves him right !!!!!

    nihal Tuesday, 30 November 2010 06:00 PM

    Well said!! chaps like this have frustrated students who have wanted to study and get on with the task of being useful citizens. Send him to some remote island with his "sagayas" where he can strike to his hearts content without destroying the lives of thousands of REAL STUDENTS.

    kamil falool Tuesday, 30 November 2010 06:43 PM

    you are a peanut.

    Ramitha Tuesday, 30 November 2010 06:51 PM

    This thugs should not be released. Let them live behind bars.

    Lakmikanth Tuesday, 30 November 2010 08:44 PM

    Very good lesson for other so called leaders too.

    Fayad Tuesday, 30 November 2010 10:05 AM

    He need more time to settle down extend till January 2012

    Patriotic Man Tuesday, 30 November 2010 10:01 PM

    You surely don't know what you are talking about. A nuclear bomb can cause only that much damage? Get out of university and give the chance to someone more knowledgeable.

    Asitha Tuesday, 30 November 2010 10:08 AM

    U reap what you sow

    Ruwan Ferdinandez Tuesday, 30 November 2010 10:10 AM

    It's Ok.

    pbj Tuesday, 30 November 2010 10:15 AM

    Shame ! , Udul must have been a nuclear bomb to make such a massive damage by himself within few seconds !!. How ever , meanwhile, the government can establish private universities as there is no one to lead protest now.

    Kanthi Tuesday, 30 November 2010 10:24 AM

    This postponement similar to an imprisonment of an accuse. This style will not help for a healthy future of the youth of the country.

    PWC Tuesday, 30 November 2010 10:26 AM

    Happy New Year !!! (Specially Uni students)

    Saman/South Africa Tuesday, 30 November 2010 10:29 AM

    Well All the Students specially rookies will be very happy,since this guy behind bars no problems in Campuses .Let him stay long time.So our Children can study peacefully.

    Thush Tuesday, 30 November 2010 10:33 AM

    Thanks Judges. Please keep him in jail forever. Universities are calm now. This shows who was behind all those calamities. At least lock him up for another year please

    KKK Tuesday, 30 November 2010 10:37 AM

    The government is fulfilling the requirements that Udul and his political campaign wants to do. He will not get upset.

    weerasuriya Wednesday, 01 December 2010 01:36 PM

    Now he doesn't have enough work so that he can prepare for his repeat exam.
