    Please expel these students from their universities as its a waste of our valuable money. They are idiots not and they will be idiots always........

    It is sad to see a young man in yellow robes beaten up. The Mahanayakas should take full blame for this debacle. They should guide these misguided youth being used as pawns by some for political milage.

    Whatever said and done, the country is enjoying democracy under Yahapalanaya. That has to be appreciated.

    Glad for your description of the injured - he does not look as if he has any knowledge of SAITM.

    Most in pics look like rowdies ruffians aand just young thugs.Hope the Police will check identities of injured and in hospital to see if it is really a protest by IUSF MED FAC students.

    If the government has any backbone they should cancel the licence of the GMOA doctors and bring doctors from India who will offer a better service.

    Those in the forefront are not Students. They are paid thugs supplied by GMOA and JVP. Lahiru is a drop out who can only stay in Uni with these protests

    Backbone? What's a backbone? Yahapalanaya does not know the meaning. Some of us actually voted for these.
