Peradeniya University students removed the tent at Galaha junction where their colleagues had been engaged in a Satyagraha for 653 days yesterday after the government announced its decision with regard to South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine.

Medical Faculty students and their parents served Kiribath (Milk Rice) to fellow university students to celebrate this occasion. The students later posed for a photograph before the tent was removed.

Speaking on the occasion, Peradeniya University Students Union president Nipuna Sankalpa said that they accept the government’s decision to abolish the SAITM. He added that their struggle to protect and promote free education and free health services will continue in the future too.

Peradeniya University Acting Vice Chancellor Professor Lakshman Wijayaweera said that academic activities of the Medical Faculty will start on November 20.
