The Government has decided to allocate Rs. 360 million to provide hostel facilities to undergraduates of the Rajarata University.Accordingly, two hostel buildings capable of providing accommodation to 800 students will be constructed for the university.
“A proposal submitted by Higher Education Minister Prof. Wishwa Warnapala to this effect received the nod of the Cabinet on Wednesday,” Cabinet spokesman and Minister Anura Priyadarshana Yapa told the media yesterday.
Lack of hostel facilities has been a constant grievance of the Rajarata University students who staged two protest campaigns in front of the Higher Education Ministry on Monday and Wednesday.
Yapa said it has also been decided to deviate from the approved selection procedure and entrust the construction of the hostels to the State Engineering Corporation (SEC) in view of the urgent need of the students.
