Jan 04, Colombo: A university students' union in Sri Lanka complains that the government is allocating more funds to military school than state universities.

The Inter University Students' Union (IUSF) says that the government was slashing funds allocated to state universities, but allocates a large sum of monies to the Kotelawala Defence University (KDU).

IUSF Convener, Sanjeeva Bandara told a news conference that the government has allocated more funds for the KDU than several state universities in its budget for this year.

He has explained that the government has allocated Rs. 10.144 billion to state universities while allocating Rs. 17.311 billion to the KDU this year.

According to Bandara, funds allocated to the state universities have been slashed by Rs. 2.769 billion.

He added that the government while promoting private universities was trying to create a military mindset among undergraduates and even the academics by providing more facilities to the KDU.
