Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 28, No. 11. 1965.
"The Government is making political capital out of the Colombo Plan," one student claimed.
"It gains valuable publicity by bringing out a fixed quota of students from each country and then fails to give them the benefits students expect from three or five years of study," he said.
He emphasised that he did not mean that this happened to all students. But he said that for some the Government "shows them the scenic spots, gives them a certificate for doing comparatively nothing and sends them home again."
