Measures have also been taken to reduce the physical training exercise program. Accordingly, the morning physical training program has been compact.
Measures have already been taken to increase the interval period between training periods and to assign university lecturers as much as possible to conduct lectures which had been earlier conducted by Army instructors he added.
The Leadership Training Program has made a tremendous impact on university entrants during the past few years. Students have much-admired the Government for providing a systematic training to develop their personalities.
The Higher Education Ministry has allocated over Rs.100 million to provide food, transport and T-shirts to the university entrants who take part in this training program.
A two -week training program of this nature would cost a student around Rs. 50,000. The program provides systematic training to youth in psychological, physical, health, sports and fitness training exercises. It would educate youth on solving problems in a scientific manner and improving their mental and physical condition.
