‘Join Batticaloa Campus to Eastern University’

The Batticaloa University set up by former Eastern Province Governor M.L.A.M. Hizbullah should be affiliated to the government’s Eastern University after conducting a full-scale investigation into its sources of funding and objectives, Megapolis and Western Development Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka said.

He was addressing a meeting after laying the foundation stone for an administrative building of the Urban Development Authority at a cost of Rs. 75 million in Ampara recently.

Minister Ranawaka said the Batticaloa University has created a hornet’s nest with allegations and counter-allegations about financial fraud. He said at the inception, it was said that this university was set up to provide technological training. But a completely different course of actions had been taken after inaugurating five courses.

“A full investigation ought to be conducted about the use of funds received for the university from an Arab country to see whether part of it had gone into pockets of some individuals. If an individual or group of individuals had been involved in a financial fraud under the guise of this university, they should be severely punished under the law,” the Minister said.
