* Sri Lanka Marxists attempt to gain control of radical students' movement
Sat, Mar 1, 2014, 09:50 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Mar 01, Colombo: Sources close to the Inter University Students' Federation (IUSF) of Sri Lanka says that the Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) under its new leader Anura Kumara Dissanayaka has intensified the effort to win back the leadership of the IUSF to the party.

Present IUSF convener Najith Indika and former convener Sanjeeva Bandara are members of the Frontline Socialist Party the breakaway group of JVP.

IUSF is not a legal body in the university system but it is recognized for decades as the radical students' movement of the country.

JVP was in the helm of the IUSF until the party split in 2011.

IUSF sources say that JVP had recently failed an effort to buy or oust the IUSF leader Najith Indika.
