    No wonder, why Degrees from Universities in Sri Lanka is not valued much, because the students spent more time on streets than in Lectures!

    They will strike whilst at university and then once they pass out they will go in protest marches asking for government jobs, then once they are employed they will strike asking for more....what do they do for the country......nothing.

    The future misfits, thanks to free education.

    No wonder, why srilanka does not consider academic qualification as a valid qualification. These people decline the good will of university.

    We could've built a new medical faculty with the money, time and energy that are being wasted on roads like this.

    They are more on the road than in the class. The worst set of students in the entire world, who are manipulated by the politicians. Shame.

    Ask doctors to stop P.P. while they are working at government hospitals. Then, we too will support these protests. Once they pass out from the university, there main target is to do PRIVATE PRACTICE and earn like nothing.

    No wonder our country will be a total collapse once they pass out and secure employment in the State Sector unless the Government ban politics in Universities immediately.
