Undergrads on strike again

    Dr Aakai, I think government does not treat undergraduates well. They were considered as a anti government group at all the time. Universities do not produce graduates who are useful to improve the economy due to their out dated curriculum. Also JVP uses undergrads to fulfill their political needs, and poor students are always at the receiving end.

    DrAkai,

    Please read the new item carefully.

    The students are fighting for something already promised to them.

    Dirty politicians promise sun and moon during the election time because they want votes. I know personally the so-called Sagara Vishva Vidyalaya (SVV) has not developed to a stage to be affiliated to a University.

    But our Motta Raala, just to grab some votes promised it would be affiliated to J`pura university. So now the students are asking for what has been promised.

    I am all against students? strikes, but this time I take the side of the students.

    This is a very good example what happens when you promise things you cannot do.

    This business of `promising politics` has been there for donkeys years in SL. Every donkey in the country should be knowing that what is promised is never given. Surprisingly even the uni students who are supposed to be the best brains in the country still do not seem to understand this concept of `promising politics` ! :-)
