A protest was held in front of Pettah Bo tree this afternoon demanding the release of University student activists and the abolition of Malabe Private Medical College.

A heavy traffic jam was created on the Olcott Mawatha, Pettah due to this protest by the IUSF activists, GMOA members and representatives of several other trade unions.

Our correspondent stated that the protestors burnt tyres and effigies to show their protest.

Meanwhile, the Minister of Higher Education Lakshman Kiriella says the Government is prepared to accept any solution to solve the SAITM issue without closing down the institute.

He also said that the final decision will be taken by courts as the issue is already in courts.
