    No sympathy for this rowdy bunch who does not care a damn about common man on the roads when carrying out politically motivated agendas of their political bosses.

    Well done... This was long overdue... Now catch the people behind it...

    Good start. Next, use rubber bullets. That's the language they understand.

    Government would have to repent one day , if not take serious step to solve this burning issue,what ever it should make parties happy, if otherwise, you expect to put off find solution and bind to faithful police force, quickly you will see the end of your political authority

    Next time around use live bullets and get rid of these university thugs who are instigated by bankrupt politicians. Also suggest move that University Grants Commission to singarajah forest so that these thugs can protest at the rightful environment. Government should take stern action against these goons who are a pain to the society.

    Poor show. They should be given rubber bullets treatment for disturbing the public who are being taxed rupees hundred million for a the universities and this is what these bastards do. There should be a restriction to this free education system and should be made to pay for it than skin the people alive.

    Please re-locate the University Grants Commission (UGC) premises to Weeraketiya or some place more significant. Will save us poor commuters many hours being stuck in traffic in Colombo. All you millenial students don't forget if you waste our productive time like this, we wont have money to pay the taxes to the government which will pay for your university "free education" bills!

    These anti-national, self-interested, ill-educated, mulish thugs should be made to pay for their ignorance, selfishness, obduracy and violence once and for all so that they don't show up their faces covered with placards on the roads again. A good start to duck these wet blankets
