The students of the Jayawardenapura University have taken the Vice Chancellor Dr. N. L. A. Karunaratne under house arrest a short while ago following a protest held at the university premises.
The students had been protesting against the VC’s decision on rejecting Mahapola scholarships and they are claiming they plan to hold the VC under house arrest until he decides to approve the scholarships.
The Mirihana police stated that several teams have been dispatched to the location after they were informed by the university about the situation. (Daily Mirror Online)
The day we see a JVP free country... the universities will be back to normal

Ever since this VC was appointed there are problems.

Only solution for this (wether you like it or not) is ENGLISH medium. 90% problems will be over.

Dias, he might have taken u for a ride by saying Bob Marli

People never appreciates anything given free. If these student were made to pay for their own education they will be more busy trying to pay off their fees than do stupid things like this and they will appreciate and be extremely proud of their hard work! End result will benefit this nation with a work force with a better work ethic!

I agree with you for the behavior of few university students However the majority are behaving in a good manner and most of them are getting good jobs and they can talk few English words too Hope you missed the university entrance in your AL

Not house arrest but taking hostage...see how media is trying to whitewash criminal actions.
Wara Wednesday, 10 August 2011 10:21 AM
Because JVP cant control him.
Gayan Samarasekara Wednesday, 10 August 2011 10:20 AM
well National song?? may be by Bob marley.he might have otherwise taken you to a ride. :) But this house arrest is a deserving punishment for puppet VC.

what is this? why cant uni students protest for a true cause without being termed as JVP? what right does the VC have to cancel mahapola? how many students survive on it!

It seems that somebody must have made you fool bcz of the primary question ask from a university student. But I don’t say that you can’t find ten twenty such foolish students among 100,000 of students in universities. If you investigate a particular population you will find wide varieties in that population including a very few not worthy sample as well. But you must not understate the whole population bcz of few not worthy elements. Please have a look at the reality. Who does most of high profile companies manage in Sri Lanka? 90% of them graduated from SL universities. Don’t blame others just bcz of you couldn’t pass to universities!!!!!

I think majority who comment here does not know the Japura VC's past actions. False witnesses, illegal arrest of students are some. JVP or not, this guy deserve worse than this!
rogue Wednesday, 10 August 2011 10:48 AM
so funny the guy who is telling that university students are uneducated culprits,does not even know to spell simple english. The joke of the day,anyway Mr.dias no doubt you are filled with jealousy that you never got a chance to enter
Andriod Wednesday, 10 August 2011 11:46 AM
Please don't underestimate these students, they are very smart but helpless. The VC is a pervert who visits the girls hostel at 8.30 pm by force.
Ranjith. BG Wednesday, 10 August 2011 11:44 AM
Antare in front. Still small amount of foolish people supporting this JVP.
Cyril Alwis Wednesday, 10 August 2011 11:45 AM
Batcha, if possible, let them come to Europe and do management. They will be like frogs in the well. Those who pass out our untiversities can hardly write or talk English.
