Higher Education Minister S.B. Dissanayake charged today that a group of university students in the south were trying to team up youth who were involved with the LTTE at that time to launch another armed struggle.

Addressing a function at the Jaffna University, the Minister said that these students have political dealings with the breakaway group of the JVP.

He said, “These students came to the Jaffna University in search of youth who were with the LTTE at that time. They are trying to go for an armed struggle. We cannot allow that to happen.”

Referring to the facilities at the Jaffna University, he said that Rs.573 million had been allocated to the university this time, and action would be taken to resolve the accommodation problem of students as soon as possible.

He said that Sinhala students had been sent to the Jaffna University based on their Z-score marks at the GCE Advanced Level Examination. “It is not an attempt to create forcible Sinhala colonies in the south,” he said.

Also, he said that the universities were not meant to function on ethnic and religious identities of students. (KB)

    Some of the actions and statements made recently by SB were not acceptable to majority of people. Nevertheless, we do not want another 88/89 era ever again. Authorities should appeal to parents of students. NOT to students. Authorities should keep reminding the parents what happened to thousands of youth because of so called JVP bogus ideologies and impractical stupid actions which ultimately disown children to the poor parents. Parents of students should be much more alert.
