A large number of parents and students affected by the Z- score muddle staged a protest march to the University Grants Commission (UGC). The protest march brought the heavy afternoon traffic to a complete standstill
Some 1,500 students and parents from various districts were seen shouting slogans against the injustice caused to them by the recently released Z-scores.
Ten students from different districts were invited to discuss their concerns with Secretary to the UGC Sunil Gamini Navaratne a short while ago while the other protesters are remaining outside.
An affected student said they were even prepared to engage in a fast unto death, if a solution is not provided by the authorities.
The protesters shouted slogans against the Ministers and the UGC holding them responsible for the predicament they were facing. ( Nabeela Hussain & Hafeel Farisz)
