Following the incidents at the Sabaragamuwa University where Higher Education Minister S.B. Dissanayake was forced to leave through an alternate route on Sunday, the Inter University Students Federation (IUSF) today said he would likely to get the same treatment at other universities as well in future.
“It is likely that Minister Dissanayake will face the same fate he faced at the Sabaragamuwa University in other universities. The students were only raising their voice for their rights and against the low standard hostel built in the campus,” IUSF convener Najith Indika told a news conference in Colombo.
Police fired water cannons to disperse protesting Sabaragamuwa University students at the Pambahinna Junction in Balangoda on Sunday, when they tried to prevent Minister Dissanayake from entering the University to declare open the new hostel. (Lahiru Pothmulla)
SB has entered the university and declared opened the new hostel. So IUSF protest was not a successfull one.

Minister must put his foot down and remove the trouble makes and let those who wanted to study carry on with their studies. Students who skip lectures must not be allowed to sit for exams. Those who fail exams without valid reasons must be sacked. Then trouble makers would vanish and others will prosper.
