Inter University Students Federation (IUSF) today said that they are planning to file a petition at the Supreme Courts this week against making the leadership training program compulsory for new University entrants by the Higher Education Ministry.

IUSF Convener Sanjeewa Bandara told Daily Mirror Online that the Higher Education Ministry has no authority to make the leadership training program compulsory for undergraduates. “We would not object to this measure if it benefited the students. But these campaigns are held residentially in military camps for three weeks and we do not believe that it would have a positive effect on the participating students,” Bandara said.

Speaking further he stated that they will also be organizing more protests countrywide in objection to the leadership camps that are scheduled to be held in military camps. However, the leadership training program for the first batch of new university entrants is scheduled to commence on May 23. (Lakna Paranamanna)

    Giving a leadership training to university entrants is fine. However, it should be a civil leadership training. We do not need a militarized training.Every parent should object this.

    This is a good initiative. Sick of seeing Uni education is interrupted frequently by protests. Having said that it is also bit going over board to take the students to Military camps for training.

    instead university students should be sent to rehabilitation centers.

    The zoological gardens might be a better option.

    Training in military camps not acceptable.

    Channa Monday, 16 May 2011 09:15 AM

    How about organizing a camp in the hostel, not for three weeks, but during the entire rag season to brain wash towards reds ???

    Ceylonese Monday, 16 May 2011 08:37 AM
