New campus in Buttala to accommodate EUSL Sinhala students

[TamilNet, Saturday, 20 September 2008, 13:21 GMT]
The University Grants Commission (UGC) has worked out a proposal to provide accommodation in a building located in Buttala in Uva Province to about 100 Sinhala students who left Batticaloa, and to engage lecturers from Universities of Sabaragamuwa, Uwa Vellesa, South East and East to conduct classes, according to informed sources in Colombo. The new facility comes under the administration of the Sabaragamuwa University. The proposal has come after a Sinhala student was shot dead in Batticalao district where the EUSL is situated.

However, Eastern University of Sri Lanka (EUSL) Vice Chancellor Dr.N.Pathmanathan in a statement to media that the UGC has been considering other alternatives in this regard,

"No information has been received about a decision to establish a campus of the East University in Buttala by the government or by the University Grants Commission to accommodate such students. However, Sinhala students who gained admission to the East University are being temporarily transferred to other universities in the South to pursue their education without interruption," the EUSL Vice Chancellor added. The EUSL administration has been conducting discussion with the UGC to resume its academic activities without delay, he said in the statement UGC has already decided to transfer temporary all 200 Sinhala undergrads studying in universities in North and East following killing of Sinhala undergrad in Batticaloa.
