Plan to “Sinhalacise” Eastern University discussed

[TamilNet, Thursday, 17 February 2011, 04:32 GMT]
A plan to appoint Sinhalese academicians as the Vice Chancellor, Registrar and Dean of Faculties to the Eastern University of Sri Lanka (EUSL) was seriously considered at a meeting held to discuss the development of EUSL presided by Minister of Higher Education Mr.S.Dissanayake, education sources in Batticaloa said. The meeting was held amid protests made by the Batticaloa district Tamil parliamentarians against the appointment of Sinhalese as the Competent Authority to the EUSL.

Meanwhile, it is alleged that the President of the EUSL Students Federation V.Vimalraj has been acting as an ”agent” of the Deputy Minister of Resettlement Vinayagamoorthy Muralidharan alias Karuna who is leading a Para military group in taking forward Mahinda Chinthanaya into the EUSL administration.

Education officials said that there is wide acknowledgement among the university staff that a Sinhalese was appointed as the Competent Authority by the High Education Ministry at the insistance of Karuna.

Karuna has been alleging that the EUSL administration was corrupt.
