Higher Education and Highways Minister Lakshman Kiriella told Parliament yesterday that the government would not abolish the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine.
The government would have to face legal action if it abolished the SAITM, he said.
The Minister said the government hoped to develop the SAITM as a public-private partnership. The government needed the assistance of the JVP for that purpose.
The Minister said so responding to a question raised by JVP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake. (SI)
