JVP Challenges SB For Open Debate

Oct 31, 2010 9:27:36 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The JVP has challenged Higher Education Minister S. B. Dissanayaka for an open debate on the crises ridden university system in the country and the alleged suppression of student movements.
JVP parliamentarian Anura Kumara Dissanayake says the government’s suppressive actions have increased the level of student unrest in the country. He told the media that the government was trying to avoid the situation by accusing the JVP of creating clashes in universities.

According to Dissanayake, the university students have genuine grievances and are also concerned over the possibility of losing free education in the country.

He has said the government’s decision to permit the establishment of private universities would undermine the current free education system.

Dissanayake notes the government needs to address the grievances of the students.
