    It is not a joke. That is how things should be.

    Gaz Friday, 29 October 2010 01:53 PM

    in case you didnt realize, these people dont listen to anybody... university education never should be given free. When they pay money they realize how difficult it is. When they get things free they dont care..

    AH Friday, 29 October 2010 02:01 PM

    Pls dnt jsut throw words without looking at the reality. This person has not done anything good to university students. He is trying to put them in traps and to destroy innocent students's future. Nothing else. Students are supposed to study and not to do politics. Its a shame. Anyway this will be a good news for all these innocent parents and studious uni guys

    garawi Friday, 29 October 2010 02:06 PM

    The opposition is in total disarray! Ranil cannot win any elelctions and is refusing to leave the leadership. So the rest are struggling to come up with any solution be it making friends with the devil. So they take in people like Mangala, JVP, SF and now this bully Premaratne!

    garawi Friday, 29 October 2010 02:13 PM

    Look at the monk is the middle in purple robe! He even has a modern hair cut! Are these real monks who are supposed to spread buddhism ! They are fake monks who spread hatred among the poor students. The should be expelled from the universities!

    Faqi Friday, 29 October 2010 02:30 PM

    Arresting people will not solve any issue. They should have a round table discussion & air all of their grievances and work out an equitable solution to the problems. It has nothing to do with Monks or Buddhism , they may all be genuine students & have some grievances. If we live in a democracy, freedom of speech, freedom of assembly etc. are guaranteed by the constitution. Arresting people who assemble peacefully is an affront to democracy and to good governance.

    Samson Friday, 29 October 2010 02:35 PM

    It is shame how people talk nonsense but not the real issue. People living in Srilanka who are writing these comments seem to be against university students. But it is due to students and Unions campaigns we have been able to safe guard not only the free education of the country but also many other public properties and services.

    Sarath Friday, 29 October 2010 10:17 AM

    I fully agree with you. Monks are the one fourth of the buddhism and the university denomination would be a tiny part even of it.

    Jacob Friday, 29 October 2010 10:21 AM

    What are these monks doing here.. they suppose to be protecting Buddhism...instead these bogus monks have resorted to protecting campus thugs..!

    SHAM Friday, 29 October 2010 10:31 AM

    hey sampath can you tell the good things he has done. he is only destroying education as well as buddhism by connecting with student monks

    kamal Friday, 29 October 2010 03:32 PM

    whts the punishment for Dr Mervins Thugs who are hits to Uni student yesterday???????????
    pls give a comment

    nadi Friday, 29 October 2010 10:36 AM

    We do not want to create another 88-89 period. For god sake solve this problem without killing each other.

    jayawickrema Friday, 29 October 2010 08:07 AM

    Wht a jolk There is a meeting UNP and IUSF . What they were discussing ?????????????

    babu Friday, 29 October 2010 08:08 AM

    See this bunch of thugs. They are not monks, just some thugs covered with a robe, beat the lot. before they disgrace budhisum more.

    Ruwan Ferdinandez Friday, 29 October 2010 08:10 AM

    Why can't these students sit down like that and listen to their lecturers?

    unl Friday, 29 October 2010 08:13 AM

    @ universities UNP students getting beaten by IUSF members everyday. Now they all enjoing a tea at sirikotha. What a joke.

    Cynic Friday, 29 October 2010 08:14 AM

    If Udul was in parliament, he would cross over now.

    SanathW Friday, 29 October 2010 10:44 AM

    These bafoons should be drop-kicked out of university, so those that want to study can do so peacefully.

    Fayad Friday, 29 October 2010 08:15 AM

    underprivileged students, Two mobile phones sponsored by JVP ???????

    M.H. Mohd Friday, 29 October 2010 08:19 AM

    this politicians are behind this udul & uni student....why the uni student meet UNP leaders / any other politicians???

    rasika Friday, 29 October 2010 08:19 AM

    We don't see any maturity from the faces of this bunch of people though they are thought to be supreme only inside the campus.

    venga Friday, 29 October 2010 08:24 AM

    you can goto a university if u can memorise things than others (except engineering subjects), that doesnt mean they are intelligent enough to understand priorities in life, these people should be in a university cos they dont know their priorities once entered the uni.

    Suren Friday, 29 October 2010 08:41 AM

    they may discuss how to topple the government and form a new govrnment where they can freely do all the dirty works in universities

    srilal Friday, 29 October 2010 11:18 AM

    great...put them jail....

    Suren Friday, 29 October 2010 08:43 AM

    looks like a bunch of thugs

    lankaputha Friday, 29 October 2010 08:44 AM

    To which university have you been to. And why can't all take the same results?

    KD Friday, 29 October 2010 11:30 AM

    if you had any idea how poor our people really are you would not say this

    Darren Friday, 29 October 2010 08:49 AM

    When I was in the Uni I was attached to Independent Group Supported by UNP.We were harassed by Anthare during the entirety of our uni life.Sirikotha did not come to protect us like this when were beaten and killed during that time.See the bad example Karu(UNP) is giving to the majority of peace loving Uni Students!UNP is with Anthare? Do they Condone what they do inside Universities? This is disgraceful move by UNP.Tears come to my eyes when I remember how UNP left us alone on the hands of Anthare and now they show so much concern about these thugs. Do you wonder why people say that UNP is ruined by people like Karu,Ravi,Mangala,Ranil?

    Nivethan Friday, 29 October 2010 08:54 AM

    At least it is now university students should think of only concentrating on studies rather than being pawns of any political parties or being self proclaimed 'Heros/Thugs'. They also forget the fact that they are studying on all people of this country's money.

    ajith Friday, 29 October 2010 09:01 AM

    Do not give in to these ruffians demands.
    They have no luck for free education.

    Ajith Kadawata Friday, 29 October 2010 09:02 AM

    No. One sponsored by JVP and other one is by UNP. Or else how can he maintain two mobiles without a job even. These guys are living like kings but poor students are suffering...

    ind Friday, 29 October 2010 09:05 AM

    Yeah, poor students follow these people's instructions and destroy their future.

    Gamini Lindagedera Friday, 29 October 2010 09:05 AM

    The reverend 'Buddhist Sasana' is fast loosing it's place, respect and purpose in civic society. We are sad with this happening.

    ind Friday, 29 October 2010 09:06 AM

    Cats out of the bag !!! Now we can see who are behind these incidents in Universities at once !!!

    w.g.l. Friday, 29 October 2010 09:11 AM

    Ossan Salam - Doha Saturday, 30 October 2010 03:47 AM

    There is a saying ....Goats getting wet.......wolves are crying......what a pity

    Chow Chow Friday, 29 October 2010 12:49 PM

    Even beggars use mobile these days. Are you from Mars or Hambantotha?

    chris abey Friday, 29 October 2010 01:01 PM

    Anybody?

    hewasam Saturday, 30 October 2010 04:18 AM

    But somebody may be paying him to maintain two mobiles.

    Musthafa Friday, 29 October 2010 09:45 AM

    Anybody can afford a mobile.... your comments shows how much you are educated....

    Jay Ranaweera Friday, 29 October 2010 01:21 PM

    Darren, UNP and JVP are on the same boat to HELL OF RUINATION!!! UNP never criticised assaulting Ruhuna VC by a THUG STUDENT of Ruhuna Univ. This proves their attitude.

    Gayan Samarasekara Friday, 29 October 2010 09:50 AM

    But it was UNP initiated privatizing education through White paper.. However private universities are a timely need for the future of the country.

    mallie Friday, 29 October 2010 09:50 AM

    buddhism is not monks. good & cultured people like you

    American Friday, 29 October 2010 01:37 PM

    Don't judge any religion, by looking at the behavious of the people, but look at the sciptures to judge about any religion, because no one in this world follow 100% of any religion.
