    these are the lazy seeds of sri lanka. they want free eduction and also government to find them job too. School drop outs are doing better jobs than them, because they strive for it. Atleast can learn from neighboring country.

    I wonder why these worthless arts undergraduates protest like hell broken loose against medical and engineering private university degrees. They know nothing about what is really happening, poor souls.

    Duminda, you are correct. They go to foreign universities for Masters and then PHD and never come back. Most of the Asian Countries have private universities functioning without any disturbances, Please be kind enough to help your peers who missed the chance of entering to Govt Uni with a narrow margin to be qualified at least in a private uni.

    Wow, so much know-how, so much criticism, so much ego. It would be very helpful if you could post your A/L stream and university with your informative anonymous comments.

    THESE UNDERGRADS SHOULD NOT BE RECRUITED IN PRIVATE COMPANIES, THEY SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO FIND OUT JOBS IN STATE SECTOR.

    ANTON Wednesday, 21 October 2015 04:11 PM

    THIS IS THEIR EDUCATION, PRACTICAL SESSIONS I SUPPOSE., YOU MUST HAVE SEEN THAT THEY APPLY THESE THINGS IN GOVERNMENT INSTITUTIONS.

    So only students that get selected to a local university could have a future? these people should be expelled and more deserving students should be given the chance.

    Duminda Wednesday, 21 October 2015 04:14 PM

    Only country in the world with free education. During university era demo. But at the end, most of these free loaders disappears to foreign lands for better life styles. This is real facts. Only deprive other students life line. This looks like biggest joke in the world. SL needs to face this day light robbery. Shame!!!

    who ever protect at university level, later in their life might protect at office in order to get promotions and salary increment... the culture of university should change then only can compete with others in the company...
