    The saying goes "a person can be judged by the persons he/she is associated with". A university can be judged by the persons it awards doctorates to. Dr. MS is not alone now, here is Dr RW to keep company.

    DM - those who are sarcastic about RW should better know that he had his basic degree from a Sri Lankan Uni. Not the way the two Rajapaksa's got them. Jayaraj

    Add GMOA, IUSF and the Teachers Union to that list who are blocking good paid education in Sri Lanka itself.

    Dee Tuesday, 14 February 2017 01:01 PM

    If our worthless goons who protest on the street are called 'doctors' after they pass out, why not our PM? Miles apart. In every sense.

    willows Tuesday, 14 February 2017 12:55 PM

    The real reason is the contribution to the prosperity of Deakin by all politicians in Sri Lanka by making a total mess of local higher education.
