    lecturers and the government play havoc with our life. If FUTA protests for save free education in srilanka, why they ask funny demands??
    FUTA is still adamant, and ruins our time, and life.
    FUTA and SB deliberatly spoil our life.

    FUTA survives with NGO money. There is a clear political agenda behind this longest strike in the world by academics. Innocent FUTA members have been taken for a ride.

    Saman may not know about great academics. Most of professors in Sri Lankan universities are fake professors. Some of professors does not have PhD. Most of lectueres do not have reputed journal publications such as ISI or Scopus. These fake professors don't allow to recuit PhD-holders with research publications. They give first class BSc, BA to students who can be controled by themself and recruit to the universities. Most universities has family tree of staff members. FUTA supports such a professors. These all fake professors shold be quit.

    Just an advice Ravi - don't have high expectations. They aren't that special. If you need to identify the genuine ones, ask a recent graduate who handles his/her job well.
