University Education Minister Lakshamn Kiriella said the University Leadership Training Programme, "Nayakathwa Phunuwa" conducted for university students by military personnel would be cancelled from this year.

He said that instead of the leadership programme the focus would be on developing the Language Skills of the new entrants and if necessary of the other undergraduates as well.

The mandatory leadership training programme was conducted at twenty Army Camps, but it came under heavy criticism after several students fell sick while undergoing this training. (L.B. Senaratne)

    Why do we need properly trained leaders to lead the nation. Look at the list of dumb good for nothing politicians who are about to lead the nation in the next five years. These idiots don't even have the common sense to continue with good programs initiated by the previous govt.

    docl : What he meant was are they qualified and experenced to give leadership training. Physical training is not leadership training. And who actually training the university students?

    Please have a national policy for education with consent from all parties ( at least shadow minister) .Each and every minister do their own way but no national policy .

    Sanity prevails. How can Standard 8 and O/L qualified provide leadership training to university students. Now is the time to start a similar one for the students at Diyawannawa. Never too late.
