Eighty percent of students selected for university education had arrived in the military bases to participate in the leadership training programme as of 2.30 pm today despite some political parties requesting parents not to send their children for it, officials said. 

Higher Education Minister Dr. Sunil Jayantha Navaratne told Daily Mirror today that the programme was a great success during the day.

Dr. Navaratne said that though some people had dubbed this as a military training, it was only a programme that aimed at promoting ‘positive thinking and attitudes in university students. (Kelum Bandara)

    Hope atleast 80% of them get positive thinking and attitude. What about giving the same training for the politicos. They need it more! LOL!

    clueless Sunday, 22 May 2011 04:23 PM

    I won't be surprised to learn the % was highly exaggerated....

    Holman Sunday, 22 May 2011 05:20 PM

    JVP ekata pavu appah.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Sunday, 22 May 2011 05:21 PM

    And so the balance 20% can be labelled as traitors!

    x-man Sunday, 22 May 2011 06:35 PM

    JVP does it for fun... Nothing else!

    nishantha Sunday, 22 May 2011 08:26 PM

    No... their not traitors...just idiots...

    upul Sunday, 22 May 2011 10:37 PM

    Traitor's thought.

    Aswin Sunday, 22 May 2011 11:11 PM

    This was long overdue. If you are the highest qualified and do not know english which is the global langauge then you are in the dumps and get frustrated. So nip it in the bud
    Good job

    Why not give this training in universities?

    Kapila Sunday, 22 May 2011 11:12 PM

    It's great humour, coming from Calistus.

    Ranger Monday, 23 May 2011 04:42 AM

    This whole charade is going to fall flat on its face. Things are being done ad-hoc, no logistics nor modalities. Joke of the year.

    Wimal_Modawansa Monday, 23 May 2011 04:49 AM

    Let us call all those attended the training as patriots and those who did not attend as traitors.

    rosan wasantha Tuesday, 24 May 2011 07:06 AM

    before given this training for university students it should be given for the politicians

    Konde Bendapuchhena Sunday, 22 May 2011 11:17 AM

    JVP tried there level best to stop what ever govt does,but they will never succeed 1971,88-89,all end in tragedy

    TMA Monday, 23 May 2011 06:06 AM

    They probably did it cos they hate JVP. They don't know the danger they're gettin in2. There's a sinister plot behind this

    Wara Monday, 23 May 2011 06:55 AM
