    UN P has no future,they must change the name of the Party and appoint General Fonseka as the leader.

    Stupid! The opersition have got their wires crossed as usual.The government should be applauded for brining in foreign students they will not only contribute to the economic development of the country by bringing in much needed foreign exchange. They will buttress the university system and the students will build long lasting friendships with foreign students and enchance their skills and culture.

    Lately the govt met failure or didnt enjoy successs in every thing they try to implemented. Keep that pace and fight back.
    Do work with JVP too irrespective of your views. They are very good in organizing.

    Madness, we know what UNP did during their regime to University affairs.

    Tharaka Tuesday, 28 June 2011 11:13 AM

    Sizable portion of university positions should allocated to foreign students to infuse capital into university system and improve salary and number of positions available in the faculties. There should be some practical business plan where all three parties sri lankan students , academic staff and international students can benefit.

    It is really strange and sad our Politicians vision on our country,
    They want to take our country backward.
    These Idiots want just power to gain their personal welth and benefit only.
    Bringing Foreign student is much better for the country as well as for our own students.
    This does not mean that I'm supporting MR. but we have to appreciate when they make good decisions.

    "Moda" Attanayake and UNP ! what nonsense is this. For the sake of opposing they are shouting without seeing beyond thier noses !! No wonder they are in the Doldrums !!!

    Chamara Samarasinghe Tuesday, 28 June 2011 11:47 AM

    What's wrong with UNPers ,have they become socialists doing the jvp'ers bidding.

    S. Aran Johnny Tuesday, 28 June 2011 12:43 PM

    This is really strange! If I remember correct it was the UNP that pushed through the idea of the private medical college. They seem to have lost their plot.
