The movement has made this statement condemning the assault of Former Chairman of the Federation of University Teachers Associations Dr. Nirmal Ranjith Dewasiri.

The communiqué adds that Dr. Nirmal Ranjith Dewasiri was actively involved in bringing about good governance while being a key figure amongst university community and was an individual who voiced his opinion without fear for the betterment of the society.
