    He is a mouthpiece.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Thursday, 21 October 2010 06:43 PM

    You cut a very sorry figure, Mr. Minister!

    Dilan Thursday, 21 October 2010 11:16 AM

    So hitting the students is the answer...nicely said KR.

    Knight RIder Thursday, 21 October 2010 11:19 AM

    This was the launch pad of the various terror groups in the past (JVP, LTTE, TULF, etc ) when university students clashed and formed their own political groups... the govt better solve these petty issues and manage these universities with responsibility and care.

    "these unfortunate incidents will continue as long as students behave unlawfully." Does that mean police is going to beat up journalists or general public or whoever is close by if the students behave unlawfully? If the students behave unlawfully near parliament, will the police beat up MPs also ?

    Suresh Thursday, 21 October 2010 11:31 AM

    well said sir!

    Dushantha Thursday, 21 October 2010 11:34 AM

    Nicley passed the ball.

    Gayan Samarasekara Thursday, 21 October 2010 11:36 AM

    Students will behave unlawfully as long as country leaders behave unlawfully.

    Kavinda Saturday, 23 October 2010 03:53 AM

    Your son behaved in a similar unlawful manner at school a few years ago. Remember?

    Kushan Molligoda Saturday, 23 October 2010 04:31 AM

    Very good point, this is root cause of this.......well well...people so vigilant than these parliament Muppet.

    Ranjan A Thursday, 21 October 2010 11:57 AM

    But didn't your President offered a bouquet of flowers to the police, the way police handled the situation??. Including assaulting the media personal?

    Dinesh Thursday, 21 October 2010 11:57 AM

    What minister tries to emphsize is Police has no brain

    Shivanka David Friday, 22 October 2010 12:18 AM

    he's such a stupid Idiot!! so hitting the journalists is the answer!! this fool should try to find a solution so that they may not act unlawfully rather that beating up innocent journalists.this fool should be kicked out of the parliament.

    Ranjith Thursday, 21 October 2010 12:21 PM

    Guys,

    Have a look at how the French police is responding to the riots of the people. Any better ?

    Nandimithra Thursday, 21 October 2010 12:24 PM

    So this is KEKILLA justice - students behave unlawfully and law enforcers beat up the journalists. What jokers we have as Ministers.

    Mike Brown Friday, 22 October 2010 12:50 AM

    If you are really sorry, without sitting like a donkey, the culprits in the Police should be arrested and prosecuted. Sent them to jail, to learn a lesson.

    lankan Friday, 22 October 2010 12:20 PM

    when thugs can become mps and there bullying and illegal things can be forgiven within days time,why cant these students get released ?

    Game kolla Thursday, 21 October 2010 12:32 PM

    Can you tell Mr Minister...Is there any place or ministry where law and order is enforced? Parliament is in a mess...Education, health, transport, food, etc ...all are in a mess

    Suresh Thursday, 21 October 2010 12:33 PM

    Saying sorry is not good enough. What have you done to see that it will never happen again

    Mylanka Thursday, 21 October 2010 12:34 PM

    No need to say to sorry... we are now used to it...!!!
    If you really want to say sorry... then this life is not enough for u Sir.....

    the undertaker Thursday, 21 October 2010 12:55 PM

    you look sorry

    JD Tuesday, 26 October 2010 12:47 PM

    Oh are the students to be blamed? should they be like fools in any decision the Govt. takes. They have their senses Mr.KR

    Nate Thursday, 21 October 2010 12:59 PM

    Exactly :D
    If i had one dollar for every braincell the police force had i would have one dollar

    sham Friday, 22 October 2010 01:41 PM

    Sanj Friday, 22 October 2010 04:00 AM

    these unfortunate incidents will continue as long as minister and police behave unlawfully

    sw Thursday, 21 October 2010 01:21 PM

    As a Law Maker you cut a very sorry figure, it must be because you are also a Law Breaker.

    Bluff Bluff Thursday, 21 October 2010 01:28 PM

    They are ideal scapegoats for all!

    Man B Thursday, 21 October 2010 01:32 PM

    he should say sorry for some more.

    S.Sriranjan Thursday, 21 October 2010 01:44 PM

    Behaviers are the followships for Students,should begun from Elders???

    AA Thursday, 21 October 2010 01:46 PM

    University students are further demonstrating the trend of the country. Assault; damage; and get pardoned. Police not been able to seperate students from journalists is amazing.

    nadarajah Thursday, 21 October 2010 01:51 PM

    IS THIS MINISTER MAD TO MAKE A STATEMENT OF THIS NATURE

    raj Thursday, 21 October 2010 01:57 PM

    dont publish this joker's stupid words in reputed news sites ...
    this guy is only good for low class media, papers and people.

    Ranjan A Thursday, 21 October 2010 02:44 PM

    This is Sri Lanka and NOT France.

    Zorro Thursday, 21 October 2010 03:12 PM

    Actually they should find out the officers who offended the law and make a process. "sorry" alone is not enough.

    Katussa Thursday, 21 October 2010 03:27 PM

    He is, didn't you know? Just like all the rest!!

    The Liberal Thursday, 21 October 2010 03:46 PM

    he should also apologize for the manner in which the students were assaulted. most of the assaulted were girls. SB sick little goons i.e the police charged them with batons. You don't get to hear these stories on state media.

    Premalal Thursday, 21 October 2010 03:55 PM

    Game ballata injections are with Dr silva.

    Nandimithra Thursday, 21 October 2010 03:56 PM

    Yes the strikers & journos are not attacked.

    dpl Thursday, 21 October 2010 03:59 PM

    your comment is not importanted to anyone. the minister of higher education is very clever person .he deal with students in future in prober manner the student want to study or leave for good.. srilanka universtiy of education is a free education please follow the westran countries or USA.

    Nandimithra Thursday, 21 October 2010 04:00 PM
