The most venerable Mahanayakes of the Malwaththe and Asgiriya chapters in a statement to the Ministry of higher education today said that the government has to take urgent measures to solve the impending deadlock between the Ministry of Higher education and University lecturers.

“We are aggrieved at the current predicament faced by the students of this country who are the torchbearers of the country’s future. It is indeed very disheartening to note that despite the passage of over three months to the crisis the education ministry has failed to address this issue and put forward a sustainable solution” the statement said.

    Thomas Friday, 28 September 2012 08:30 AM

    Wait, this problem will be solved once Malaka takes over the Ministry of Higher education probly become the President of this Paradise Isle

    waz Friday, 28 September 2012 09:01 AM

    We have to wait for that. I do not know how long!

    Mikee Friday, 28 September 2012 09:01 AM

    The government could have stopped all these problems if they had entrusted the matter to Dr. Mervyn Silva who is ever willing to address the issue.

    Only way the corrut, lawless Banana Republic could surview is to turn the future generations into uneducated buffalows. They are slowly but surely at it now. They will stop at nothing until the entire public Education system is ruined. The corrupt politicians will send their children to International Schools or abroad for their studies. Unless the corrupt Regime is thrown out and we save our former democratic Sri Lanka, we will slowly but surely loose our mother Lanka.

    Ministry of higher education, maybe. Presidency..........I doubt. There's a long waiting list you know.........The royal family is quite large...............

    P.G.Wijeratna Friday, 28 September 2012 05:01 PM

    If mahanayake theros reqested both parties to come to compromise the request would have been fair.

    Rahul Raj Friday, 28 September 2012 09:41 AM

    Let samurdi mama, and Z score gamer SB should be removed from the educational ministerial post

    P.G.Wijeratna Friday, 28 September 2012 05:13 PM

    The govt. and the union both have to compromise . the demand of 6 percent of national income is too much of demand at once It has to be debated in the parliament. International communities are crying to invest more in the north. The government has to balance. It need time.

    Punchinilame Friday, 28 September 2012 05:53 PM

    The Regime consisting of 4 bros and 300 Govt. employed
    relatives will give into the FUTA demands as a way out
    with a hidden agenda that will ruin Education for the
    benefit of upholding a Dictatorship - which is the Regimes
    goal. No Mahanayakes 2 cents worth of advice will fall
    in the Regimes ears.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Friday, 28 September 2012 10:07 AM

    With all due respects to the Venerable Maha Nayakes: By now everyone knows that the Ministers in charge of Education are so arrogant that they are not interested in solving nthis crisis - and neither is the President becaause he needs these Ministers to support him. Ultimately, it is the young generation who will suffer but then who cares, because the off springs of the Ministers are all studying in overseas universities and the local hoi polloi are required only to cast their votes for them.

    umer Friday, 28 September 2012 10:25 AM

    Of course all the education problem will be solved because there wont be any education in the country.

    kapa ta pissu Friday, 28 September 2012 05:20 AM

    Sadus, the problem was there for last few months. Probably you would have felt it only this week cos of the walk they did. Did u get caught to traffic congestion caused by this?

    podi malli Friday, 28 September 2012 05:26 AM

    oh!! yes, the most venerable mahanayake, our leadership have a great respect on you. now they will take action immediately.

    Sanjay Friday, 28 September 2012 05:38 AM

    Don't worry when Malaka Silva becomes education minister all these problems will be resolved

    Tomsamusa Friday, 28 September 2012 07:47 PM

    What do these skin heads know about education???
    The sacrilage they commit in the name of Buddha is an insult to the robe they wear.

    saradiyal Friday, 28 September 2012 10:52 AM

    At last Buddhist clergy is waking up. Haven't you noticed that drug loads are controlling the country. Speak out for the sake of the county..

    Lukru Friday, 28 September 2012 08:42 PM

    Do you know how much of the GDP is spent on defence ministry?
    Do you know how much money and resources are spent on a Minister and his/her staff?
    Do you know how much money is wasted on foriegn tours?
    Do you know how much money is lost due to corruption?

    Please do get the facts straight before you make emotional arguments.

    Upul Friday, 28 September 2012 11:03 AM

    Why blame these two chapters ? They say something. Where is these JHU ?

    J.D. Friday, 28 September 2012 06:02 AM

    These Politicians will never listen to any one and will not worried about our kids education too...... because their children are studying overseas........

    kingasanga Friday, 28 September 2012 11:37 AM

    Yes it should. HOW?

    Fusion Friday, 28 September 2012 11:41 AM

    The GoSL hasn't even put forward a sustainable political solution since the end of the war in May 2009. So I doubt GoSL has any interest is solving the higher education crisis. And as others have said, its younger generation thats going to suffer.

    Sam Saturday, 29 September 2012 01:31 AM

    They are not the highest paid but with the highest qualifications.
