The United National Party noted that it is strictly against the course of action taken by the government to deny Mahapola concessions to university students
guilty of breeching discipline.
Party Parliamentarian Kabeer Hassim stated that the Mahapola scheme which was the brain child of late UNP MP Lalith Athulath mudali was implemented with the aim of assisting students hailing from low income families.
MP Kabir Hassim noted that none of the former regimes which had governed the country had arrived at such a decision.
However in a bid to clarify these allegations which are being levelled against by the UNP, our news team contacted the Director General of student's affairs of the Ministry of Higher Education Keerthi Mawallage.
