    I left the country in 1989 because I couldn't complete my studies at Pera. University was closed for more than two years. They guys who initiate the strikes are mainly the ones who don't do well in their studies and they look for an excuse to miss their lectures.

    Riz-G Thursday, 14 October 2010 09:10 AM

    Seems the authorities are unaware of the Commonwealth. These students has left to India to see the games...... Can re-open on coming week

    i you are talking about engineering faculty peradeniya engineering grads also records zero unemployment record and score 100 in employment but moratuwa other wise

    Plain Talking Thursday, 14 October 2010 10:15 AM

    What a waste of tax payers and parents money. There is no doubt that JVP ugly cat paw is behind this. Engineering is not an easy degree to achieve and the students need to attend lectures and lab work and maintain contact with tutorial staff as much as possible. If they boycott the lectures to force academic standard to lower, they are very much misguided and will learn in a hard way when they get out of the uni.

    Crazy Thursday, 14 October 2010 06:36 AM

    Well if the students are not attending the lectures, how does it help the situation by closing down the institute?

    Truant Thursday, 14 October 2010 06:42 AM

    Well, if students do not attend lectures why waste every bodies time. The students are the losers. Anyhow, the authorities should investigate the real reason for this sort of boycott.

    Rohana Wickramasinge Thursday, 14 October 2010 06:49 AM

    JVP miserables crushing the universities in Sri Lanka. Take the Moratuwa university as an example who wipe out the JVPers from the university and become the only valueble university of sri lanka.

    Lam Thursday, 14 October 2010 06:54 AM

    we know how peradeniya engineering students pass their degree without attending to lectures. so it is the standard of a Peradeniya engineering graduate

    Oyage sudu kella Thursday, 14 October 2010 10:55 AM

    Above the crowd Thursday, 14 October 2010 07:12 AM

    Its very unfair to close ,They join the university using parents hard earn money to have demonstrations,strikes, destroy the public property and threaten lecturerers and get pass marks for exams.
    Their degrees worth .....................????????

    Chandi Thursday, 14 October 2010 07:14 AM

    Students must be attending to other lectures under the trees of the "wewa rawuma". Waste of tax payer's money.

    AFF Thursday, 14 October 2010 07:21 AM

    The only right students have is to study and not waste public funds.

    TDDC Friday, 15 October 2010 06:09 AM

    The JVP is a permanent dark cloud over Sri Lanka.

    jayendra Thursday, 14 October 2010 07:23 AM

    parants & students should take action against JVP mafia to wipe out from university .

    gamini Thursday, 14 October 2010 07:31 AM

    If you look at the whole picture of Sri Lanka, seems it is going backwards and not forward. But Sri Lanka wants to be next to Singapore. It is very pathetic and sad !!!!!

    sam Thursday, 14 October 2010 07:36 AM

    Authorities should not create conflicts...

    Lokka Thursday, 14 October 2010 07:40 AM

    exactly.... better to use all the (people's tax money) resources to help students who does not qualify to enter universities.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Thursday, 14 October 2010 07:50 AM

    No students, no lectures ! Ideal situation to run a university system peacefully.

    sidath Thursday, 14 October 2010 07:53 AM
