A special discussion is currently underway between the Federation of University Teachers Association & Minister of Economic Development Basil Rajapaksa at the premises of the Ministry.
A proposal containing 8 points was submitted before cabinet recently as a solution to the strike launched by the university lecturers.
University lecturers charge that the proposals submitted do not contain definite solutions to their grievances.
Hence FUTA stated that they would go ahead with their strike as planned.
According to Deputy Chairman of FUTA Venerable Dambara Amila Thero today's discussions had been convened to inform Minister Basil Rajapaksa of the proposals which had been approved by cabinet.
