‘It is true that Piriven University status is set by the Parliament. However, it’s a blessing we endowed from all Gods who protect Sri Lanka.” Dr. Wijayananda Dahanayake – Minister of Education. On the debate on incorporating the university on 16-17, September 1958 in Parliament.
I believe establishing a University for Sri Lanka is a gift as well as having the honour to read for a degree in Sri Jayewardenepura (SJP) University is also another gift.
