(Lanka-e-News -28.Feb.2017, 11.30PM) It is an unequivocal fact that scoundrels and rascals of the last nefarious decade who cannot understand the true meaning or purpose of good governance are abusing good governance . This was best illustrated when the villains of the corrupt nefarious decade, and some faceless fawning judges who were thrusting their tails between their legs during the last regime opposed the appointment of Ramanathan Kannan as the high court judge by the president lawfully and duly by virtue of the powers vested in him .
Now, there are widespread reports the ex Vice chancellor Sunanda Madduma Bandara , a henchman of Basil Rajapakse (by now a byword for monumental corruption and was incarcerated several times ) without resigning his post is protesting against the appointment of Professor D. M. Semasinghe as the Vice chancellor of the Kelaniya University
Under the University Act, three names shall be forwarded to the president by the University administrative board , and the president is fully empowered to select the most suitable candidate for the post of Vice Chancellor. It is stipulated that the candidate to be selected must have highest educational attainments ,and advanced academic research skills.
Sunanda Madduma Bandara on the contrary had only one qualification favoring his appointment as Vice Chancellor during the notorious nefarious decade. That only weird and vicious qualification was , he is a most bootlicking stooge of most infamous Basil Rajapakse. He did not possess a doctorate (Ph.D.) or even an M. Phil. qualification . He only had B.A. and M.A. degrees. Hence ,having a Vice chancellor who has no Ph.D. is something the whole University sphere should frown upon and feel ashamed of .
One of the many crooked and sordid activities of unscrupulous stooges like Sunanda engaged in during the notorious nefarious decade on behalf of the Rajapkses was , producing falsified records and statistics to justify the rigged and computer manipulated fraudulent election results when Rajapakses held elections and referendums.
Semasinghe the Dean of the Commerce and management faculty who possessed a B. Com. , M.Com., and Ph.D. qualification was therefore rightly selected by the president as the Vice chancellor of Kelaniya University. He secured his Ph. D. from Queensland University , Australia . Besides he has written many research messages to magazines , and submitted about 17 research papers at various international conferences .
In the circumstances , Sunanda the so called intellectual gathering together some idlers and vagabonds of his around him and trying to devil dance while refusing to step down is most repugnant and abhorrent. The worst part ? Sunanda is being supported by underworld criminals. Are students behaving like criminals a matter for surprise when a University Vice Chancellor conducts himself in this hooligan manner?
This is clearly a methodology that is being adopted by Rajapakse lackeys and henchmen not only to hold the good governance government to ransom but also to strangulate it.
Hence, it will be in his own best interest if Sunanda understands the circumstances in right perspective, his own handicaps and peacefully steps down as an intellectual decently and silently retaining at least that bit of honor remaining in him before the public are provoked to the point of revolt.
Meanwhile ten non partisan University Dons are to hold a media briefing on the 1 st of March and explain the situation to the public.
