The university lecturers who are on strike to protect the free education and the university system are teaching at private universities, the National Freedom Front (NFF) charged.

The people of the country do not know this secret, Politbureau member of NFF Piyasiri Wijenayake today.

He claimed that lecturers of state universities are striking so that students will join private institutions affiliated with foreign universities, as they lack student numbers.

Won’t your actions result in parents enrolling their children in private universities, he inquired from university lecturers’ associations.

The former MP accused that the leaders of lecturers’ unions are conspiring against the country to protect private universities in Sri Lanka.

A few individuals of lecturers’ unions are taking the country’s free education to its grave instead of protecting it, Wijenayake said.
