The Vice Chancellor of the Rajarata University Prof. K.A Nandasena speaking to Daily Mirror online said that he had no choice but to close down the Medical Faculty of the university by 12 noon today. “The students kept disrupting affairs of the university, all this began with my decision to suspend seven students of the second year for five weeks due to the ragging that takes place in the university. I suspended these students on January 3 and on the next day the second year students who are batch mates of the suspended students decided to boycott classes. The following day even the first year students decided to boycott lectures. I went and explained to the first year students that they should attend lectures because that is what they are here for but they didn’t heed to my requests. I warned them that I would close down the faculty and the hostels if they continue to boycott lectures,” he said
 
The Vice Chancellor went on to point out that he decided to close the faculty and requested all students to leave the university premises. The students had not left the university and continued to disrupt the functions of the university subsequent to which a court order was obtained. We told them to go home because we can’t spend tax payer’s money on these students,” he said. The Vice Chancellor had taken the decision to close down the faculty at 12 noon today.

    Is this the best way to handle students.

    No wonder there are so many unemployed graduates, and there are future doctors. Which employer would like to keep ungrateful, entitled bunch of babies. All there years of parents money and hopes, their own hard work down the drain.
    For once, kick all these trouble makers out, en mass, not just suspending them and teach them a lesson.

    After hard-work in AL, obtaining competitive Z-score to reach there, they should concentrate on studies. What a VC can do?, allow ragging? Bow his head to hidden political agendas?

    No troubles in University systems in other neighboring countries. PATHETIC...

    |Hooray and well done. This could be the signs of death knell for free education paving the way for the private university. On course sir. You maybe appointed as another monitoring type as a reward.

    These students don't know the value of free education.

    So let them pay for hit. The VC should force the students who do not obey the Law to pay for their studies.

    Also must reduce the salary of the Vice Chancellor when there are no students in the campus for doing less work. isn't it rule?

    Even we never had any problem in our University System in those days - the problem started when our parliamentary seats were occupied by people who have never entered universities and graduated (NOT honorary) - for that matter there are people who govern this country , who have not gone through their Senior Schools?? Refer Wikipedia and find out the truth??

    Some of the people who never qualified for local universities blow their flame of jealousy..

    Gamini Lindagedera Monday, 09 January 2012 03:19 PM

    What's your suggestion?

    Nodrog Tuesday, 10 January 2012 06:40 AM

    Nobody is jealous only fed-up that such a valuable benefit is being abused and so often with great inconvenience to others.

    go VC, these brats don't know the value of this chance to do medicine for free at the best universities. i dont think higher education, especially for such a privileged profession like Medicine is taught free anywhere else in the world. People who have missed the score by decimal points and who may be more worthy of these spots are crying for chances like this, and these students take the chance they've got for granted. the VC should just kick them all out, if they can't keep quiet, sit tight and study properly, because there should be a limit to such ungratefulness.
