The representatives of the Jaffna University Students Union met Northern Province Governor Dr. Suren Raghavan at the Governor’s official residence last Friday.

The representatives said that the graduation ceremony could not be held as the Chancellor and the Vice-Chancellor have still not been appointed at the Jaffna University. As a result, students who have completed studies face difficulties in finding employment and higher education. They requested the Governor to bring this issue to the attention of President Maithripala Sirisena and find a solution.

They also requested for solutions of the following issues. The lack of health facilities at Jaffna University as there are no permanent doctors or nurses. The students of Ramanathan Fine Arts Faculty face difficulties due to the frequent number of road accidents near the faculty junction. They requested that Road Development Authority and the Police find a solution to this issue.

The Student Union representatives focused on the importance of the Vadamarachchi Lagoon project to provide drinking water for the people of Jaffna launched by the President on the Governor’s initiative. They said that they will support the Governor’s efforts to solve the social problems of the North.

The Governor promised to find a proper solution as soon as possible in consultation with the President regarding the appointment of the Chancellor and Vice-Chancellor and on the delay of the convocation ceremony.

He also said that steps will be taken after the discussion with the Road Development Authority and the Northern Provincial Road Safety Council to display warning boards and place speed breakers on the road opposite the Ramanathan Fine Arts Faculty.

The Governor stated that since the doctors issue affects the Northern Province, it can be decided only after consultation with relevant authorities. Until then, students can be provided with first-aid training. He advised the students to run a bookstore at the University of Jaffna and that funds will be provided for this purpose.
