Sabaragamuwa University opens for the first year students on the 27th
Sabaragamuwa University will be opened for its first year students on the 27th of this month.
Addressing a media briefing held in the University today, its Vice Chancellor Professor Chandana Udawatta said the university will be opened for other students on the 3rd of November.
Sabaragamuwa University was closed indefinitely after a group of students forcefully entered a hostel on the 5th of this month charging that the two new hostels which were constructed in the university premises lack quality standards.
However a group of parents have been invited to the university today to discuss about the reopening of the university.
At that time, parents also supported the protesting students complaining that no solutions have been found to the student’s problems.
Police obtained a court order on the 18th of this month to remove the temporary hut that was used by students to stage their Sathyagraha for over 52 days at the Pambahinna Junction.
However the students restarted the Sathyagraha in a different place close to the former site.
Although the university will be opened again, the students vowed to continue the protest until the ban on students associations is removed and the suspension on some students is lifted.
