The TNA has said it was ready to work with the Indian and Sri Lankan governments to develop the higher education sector in the country’s North.
TNA deputy parliamentary group leader Mavai Senathirajah has made this remark in response to a statement made by Higher Education Minister S.B. Dissanayake that the government would launch a programme to develop the Jaffna University with the support of the Indian government.
Senathirajah has noted that Jaffna had been known as an area with an educated population mainly because of the University and the technical colleges. However it has diminished because of the war, he has said.
He called on the government to conduct a review on the country’s higher education sector at least once in 10 years.
