The Inter UniversityStudents Federation (IUSF) today held a protest outside the Sri Jayawardenepura University over the suspension of 58 students and the cancellation of the studentship of 11 university students.

IUSF Convener Sanjeewa Bandara said the students were suspended for revealing the situation prevailing in the University.

“There are no hostel or canteen facilities in the university today.The freedom to gather and establishstudent unions has been curtailed,” he said.

Mr. Bandara said all the IUSF students in other universities would alsohold protests if the authorities failed to take immediate action to solve the crisis in the J’pura University and if it failed to stop the arbitrary action taken to suspend students. (Sanath Desmond)
