COLOMBO (News 1st); President Gotabaya Rajapaksa on Thursday (15) stated that those who protest against educational reforms should come up with proposals for a modern education system instead of advocating political motives.

President Rajapaksa launched an official website (www.cu.ac.lk) to introduce the City university Programme as a concept at the Presidential Secretariat to coincide with the World Youth Skills Day – 2021.

Its first university is planned to be established in the next few weeks, in Pinnawala area in Kegalle District.

The President at the launch emphasized the need to take steps to expedite the implementation of the City University Programme commencing from Kegalle, throughout the island.

The City Universities will be established covering all districts with the aim of producing talented graduates equipped with the cutting edge technology, targeting the job market.

The President said that his objective of the ‘City University’ Programme is to create a person who can directly contribute to the economy or who possesses the knowledge to engage in self-employment at the end of the degree course.
