The Police used water cannons to disperse the Medical Faculty Students’ Action Committee (MFSAC) who were staging a Satyagraha in a temporary shed at the Lipton Circus a short while ago following a court order.

A large number of Police personnel gathered at the place later completely demolished the temporary sheds put up at the Lipton Circus by the students.

The Police Riot Control Unit had fired the water cannons until the students retreated.

MFSAC had started the Sathyagraha on Saturday (22) at the Lipton Circus demanding the Government to safeguard the country’s State education and to halt the move to establishing SAITM and other private medical colleges in the country.

Fort Magistrate issued an Order preventing the Satyagraha however, the MFSAC had ignored it. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    These ignorant and brainwashed students are a real pain to the society and a major hindrance to the development of the country. Controlling them is a difficult task. Easily said than done.

    There is a law in this country and one can not put up huts or sheds anywhere one pleases. Good action by the police. This has to be followed in front of the Fort Railway Station. It is an eye sore where many tourist use.

    Peratugami's (and to a certain extent the JVP) must understand that they cannot enforce their way of thinking on others. Especially by harassing the common man.
