Over thousand students from the South-East University staged a protest in front of the University Grant Commission (UGC) in Colombo since this morning (21).
The undergraduates demanded the authorities to take immediate steps to either reconstruct or replace the Engineering Faculty of the South Eastern University of Sri Lanka.
“The relevant authorities have failed to address the issue though we informed them in this regard several times,” a student said.
Heavy traffic also reported in Ward Place and Town Hall areas due to the protest. The police spokesman also advised drivers to use alternative routes if at all possible.
