This statement clearly explains the actions of the UNP who are famous for political revenge on people and they have already done in many institutions and have lost credibility of good governance under Maithree

Political interference has made a mess in our university system, Not only UGC but politics interfered in all universities in Sri Lanka, appointment of CV, UGC chairman, even appointment of academic and non-academic staff have has been influenced by politics in Sri Lanka. we all know how C Vs have been appointed by the discretion of President to meet his political gains in the past. As a result of most qualified persons are dismissed. it is reported that UGC chairman was politically appointed at the expense of some senior academics. in that case, , Prof Rajiva Wijesinghe should take firm action against this. of course, through legal mechanism.

Did she not resign her post. And state minister you should sort your issues in a more. Professional manner than going public about your concerns. It seems like you are dis satisfied of being a mere state minister and hence showing it in the most unprofessional manner.

Get some result first then you can complain about being interfered with..

Agree that, should be removed after proper procedure . The appointment of this lady and her spouse by former regime was widely contested. This Guy knows it very well. He should have initiated the inquiry instead of sleeping over it and give lame excuses. Another Prof like disgrace Prof GLP. note suitable for politics. Go back to your academic world and friends like Dayan and talk nonsenses

She has admitted that she gave orders to relevant University Authority to admit a student that has not been admitted due to lack of enough marks, to the Karapitiya faculty. That is enough for her to resign or be sacked. Yahapalanaya cannot be an excuse to safeguard wrong doing big shots. Rajiv should understand why pervious regime was toppled.

if any member of cabinet can not follow procedures and take action arbitrarily then the cretin politician should be removed and a competent person appointed. period

Be patient and open for compromisses. The previous Government has left the educational sector in a mess. Now you have to set things right ! The students are in need.
