The Colombo Chief Magistrate today further remanded the convener of Inter University Students Federation (IUSF) Udul Premaratne till December 10.
The Magistrate also ordered the Cinnamon Garden Police to file a report on that date clearly indicating the offences committed by Udul Premaratne and 21 other suspects, who were alleged to have forcibly entered the premises of the Ministry of Higher Education at Ward Place on October 14.
Meanwhile, in a separate inquiry held before the Colombo High Court to consider bail to Udul Premaratna the State Counsel appearing on behalf of the state moved for a further date to file objections. The Court allowed him to file objections on November 30. (TFT)

Student mopvements are really necessary for a country's progress. Accepted. But this is pure political opportunism by JVP. The issue is that these people forcibly take students for protests and does not allow free expression of thoughts inside universities. So what is the remedy for that?

Look at the bright side, he can become the convener of Inter Prison Thugs Federation.

If it is politically against the government, it is wrong and unpatriotic

No more riots in unis. The genuine students can now get on with their studies without intimidation. Keep him in jail and pass legislation banning this union in universities.

I know him personally when i work with him in he UOP. he is a greatman, since he take necessary actions without hesitation in the case of Allied health science students. So there was no political action on it. Anyone who criticize him, is not a guy with the FREE EDUCATION, cos in this government minister can do anything as they wish, Why they cannot struggle for Free Education

University students will have a peaceful time till he is in the prison.

Udul is spending years and years in university failing or not sitting the exams. Every citizen of the country should obey the rules of the country. Any body irrespective whether a student/clergyman/politician should be severely punished for breaking civil law. Especially leaders breaking laws should be punished severely.

Every one talks about the benefit of remanding the man. But think a bit why they do strike. We, In our university time , lived from Mahapola scholar ship. But it was not enough, If IUSF didnt ask to increase it still we are getting the same amount. Its true, JVP is controlling IUSF, But they are doing most of the things for the benefit of future generation. In a country like srilanka, we do not get any benifit until a we ask, we gen only the bad things, to get some thing , we need to shout. If you blame to the university students , think about the history, Most of the ministers in SL , are past student union leaders, Today SB is punishing students , But in the past he was a leader of that. So when think about university education , before commenting about something, please try to talk to some university students, get their idea, Just dont put comments from the facts you get from the Television or radio, Just talk to students and lectureres and comment.

Udul why u are fighting for the rights of these foolish people in Sri Lanka. they have not learn a lesson forever. Therefore Mind your own buisness without serving these foolish people.
