The main opposition UNP said today that it is fully backing the university lecturers who are currently engaged in a strike action.  The UNP has appointed a committee comprising of UNP MPs Kabir Hashim, Lakshman Kiriella, Wijedasa Rajapaksa and Akila Viraj to hold discussions with the Federation of University Teachers Association (FUTA).

    Uni. Academics played a major role in bringing MR into power. Now UNP is backing them against the govt. One of the finest jokes of the year

    Of course the UNP will support, because this is against the govt. If the UNP was in power, then it will be the other way around.

    UNP & JVP will back anything, anytime that looks like anti MR regime. They are such dumb fools who do not realize that they are offering bonuses to MR to stay longer!

    They do these dramas occasionally. The last being Sarath Fonseka's election campaign. But when time comes, they drop the batton and run away.
