As another collective attempt to eradicate dengue, a sharamadana was organized to clean the university premises on 23rd November. The Vice Chancellor Prof. Sampath Amaratunge, Registrar Mr. K. Gnanasiri Britto, administrative staff, academic and non-academic staff as well as the students took part in this event.
In recent past, the dengue threat had been spreading among the university community in a considerable manner. The university officials have held several discussions with health and other relative officials to bring solutions to the matter. The shramadana adds to this continuous effort. Probable mosquito breeding places were identified and duly cleaned up, making the university grounds a health-wise secure area.
