Kelaniya Uni academics to keep away from duties

The Teachers’ Association of the University of Kelaniya today claimed that they have decided to refrain from academic duties until a safe and favourable situation was established in the university.

The Teachers’ Association of the University of Kelaniya have abstained from academic activities except for the first year undergraduates since March 14, 2015.

Executive Committee Member of the Association, Anura Karunarathilake told the Daily News that since one year, the university academics could not be able to engage in their academic activities peacefully due to the violent behaviour of some students.

“Though we discussed the matter with the students union, there was no positive response from them. So the academics of all faculties of the university in Dalugama decided to refrain from engaging in all academic activities except for those in the first year,” he said.

He also alleged that some undergraduates have threatened them with death. “When lecturers had inquired into the inhuman nature of ragging of newly-enrolled students, senior students had issued death threats and reprimanded the lecturers,” the senior lecturer said.
