While addressing a rally held at Minuwangoda yesterday (12), the presidential hopeful stated that he would provide the opportunity for every student in this country to pursue university education in order to make Sri Lanka a centre of intelligence.
He further pointed out that Gampaha district must also be made a centre of intellectuals.
“There are a very little number of students entering local universities and this situation is not good,” Gotabaya stressed.
Pledging changes to this situation, Gotabaya said he would make a huge investment for the education sector so that every student can gain access to university education.
