Local KDU Bill is against free education policy : DLF

The Democratic Left Front (DLF), lead by Minister of Water Supply, Vasudeva Nanayakkara, has claimed that the Kotelawala Defence University (KDU) Bill is against the free education policy.

Issuing a statement on the matter, the party noted that the establishment of State universities to provide higher education on a paid basis was contrary to the free education policy, adding that such attempts to manipulate ordinary civilian students in accordance with the rules and regulations of the security forces were unconstitutional.

The statement, signed by the Deputy Secretary of the DLF, further read that the party will continue to bring to light the impact the passing of the KDU Bill would bring about.
