July 06, Colombo: All suspended undergraduates of Sri Lanka's Sri Jayewardenepura University have been unconditionally pardoned by the University administration and their studentships reinstated, the University management announced today.

The Vice Chancellor of the University, Dr. N. L. A. Karunaratne, in a lengthy letter to the students announced that the suspension and studentship cancellations imposed upon over 200 undergraduates have been unconditionally revoked effective 03 July 2014.

Following unruly actions by the students, the University has imposed class prohibitions on 189 undergraduates, studentship cancellations of 40 students and lifetime cancellation of studentship on five students.

The management has taken the decision to exonerate all the students without any conditions after considering the requests of the parents.

The administration of the Sri Jayewardenepura University said they decided to provide relief for the students and their families.

In his letter to the students, the Vice Chancellor explained that the University spends Rs. 400,000 of public money for one student in a year and it costs about Rs. 10 million a day to maintain the University.

He said 99.5 percent of the students realize the public's sacrifice and engage in their studies but a 0.5 percent swayed by the student unions and other elements waste the public money and destroy the University education.

The students meanwhile have said that a sathyagraha campaign, launched by the students and entering the 59th day today, to protest the disciplinary actions by the University will be called off.
