SJB will fight against forces opposing free education – Sajith
Leader of the Opposition Sajith Premadasa says the Samagi Jana Balawegaya will fight against forces that oppose free education.
MP Premadasa said the government is suppressing teachers, who are fighting for free education.
The Opposition Leader requested the government to hold talks with all stakeholders in the education sector and to continue the Kotelawala Defence University, by developing the university further.
However, MP Premadasa requested that authorities refrain from influencing the current free education system.
He said the current norms within local universities such as freedom of expression, right to free speech and freedom to present one’s perspective while conducting debates on topics should continue without government influence.
MP Premadasa added it is important to follow directives by health authorities, adding that the people were helpless as the government disregarded public concerns.
He stressed the people are burdened due to acts of the government.

What a joke!
Coming from a person who feigned chicken pox for his final exams for his Degree.
During my university days it is the UNP Bath gotu government created the Kotalawala Defence Academy and sent the ‘students’ to the Colombo University to use the resources there. Then sent the Siri Kotha bicycle chain gang to attack the protesting Colombo University student and start trouble before a shoes licking fat ugly dog from the near by police called Gaffoor moved in with his kukkas to baton charge and tear gas. It is with irrepressible laughter and disgust I am watching this clown going to save free education.
HAVING TOLD THE HISTORY, PEOPLE IN SRI LANKA SHOULD REALISE THAT IN A ALMOST BANKRUPT COUNTRY, IF THE EDUCATION GOING TO BE ‘FREE’ FOR ALL, IT CAN ONLY BE LIMITED TO A FEW WHETHER THEY LIKE OR NOT, AND HAVE NO QUALITY SINCE IT COST MONEY, IF TRY TO BE DILUTED TO ALL. The larger the number under ‘FREE’, the higher the cost will be to the public purse. I don’t have any problem with Kothalawala or any other private institute students sitting for government university exams and receiving degrees from those universities as log as they prove their education standards. It is un to the State Universities to make sure exams are conducted without cheating and favour and the same sat by the internal students.
