Gota sends his hunting dogs behind Dr.Nirmal, President of FUTA

 (Lanka-e-News-20.June.2012, 11.55PM) The hunting dogs of Gotabaya Rajapakse had been let loose after the President of the The Federation of University Teachers' Association (FUTA, Dr. Nirmal Ranjith Devasiri, the latest of the victims ,according to reports reaching Lanka e news.

A group that had identified itself as from the defense Ministry had entered the neighbor’s house of Nirmal and collected details about him. When the inmates of the house had inquired why they are asking for details , they have stated that Nirmal’s daughter had applied for a job in the Defense Ministry and they are doing a screening.

Nirmal’s daughter however is still attending school. When questioning about Nirmal’s movements , and the times of his arrival and departure , they have made a slip, and questioned what School his daughter is going. One of them had also asked permission to jump over the wall to note down the vehicle number of Nirmal. The women folks have declined.
The University lecturers had been agitating in the past demanding the Govt. to fulfill its promise given to them. As not one of its promises is fulfilled, they are getting ready to stage a campaign . It is very clear therefore that this measure adopted by the Rajapakse regime is to frighten and intimidate the leaders of these campaigns. 

When the Doctors held a conference today regarding the campaign of the lecturers , this sending of hunting dogs by Gotabaya was questioned. The Minister S B Dissanayake had pretended that he is innocent and dodged the issue . 

Meanwhile the strike of the University non academic staff is on for the last two weeks without a solution in sight.
