Public Relations and Public Affairs Minister Mervyn Silva today said it was the duty of the government to resolve the university academics’ issues considering them as a special category.

Speaking at a function in Biyagama, the minister said, “I have something to tell the government….the professors and lecturers are an asset to the country. This asset can not be imported even through containers. This is the asset of Sri Lankans. This asset is greater than the four great rivers. So it is the duty of the government to resolve their issues through discussions by considering them as a special category.”

The minister also requested academics to come for discussions without being Shylocks. “It is a big mistake if they are disloyal to their generation,” he added.
