(Lanka-e-News - 26.May.2017, 11.30PM) The new minister of finance and mass media has as a first step taken measures at once to upgrade the mass media of Sri Lanka which have descended to the lowliest levels .
Accordingly , with a view to re-structure the State media Institutions , he had informed the chiefs and the Director Boards of those Institutions to resign in order that new comrades can replace them . Already the entire board of the Independent television service has resigned. It is learnt , it is likely some of the members who were incompetent would be replaced and not the entire Director board.
In addition , the minister without wasting time on pomp and fuss, in his characteristic competent style has taken most vital decisions to put the wayward and crookedly motivated villainous private media Institutions on the right track .
It is the primary aim of the minister to visit every private media Institution , and meet the owners or the chiefs of the divisions , and inform them of the needs and necessities of the country which are paramount. The minister has decided first and foremost to request them not to impede the reconciliation efforts , and to halt their backstreet media activities which foil the reconciliation process.
After the country was devastated and ravaged by a 30 years old war , if the owners of media Institutions are still expecting to stoke conflicts and racial tensions through their media activities , then this country forever will be facing a bloodbath. As a civilized government that cannot be permitted. Hence the new minister said, he has taken crucial decisions to put a stop to this once and for all by issuing stern instructions to the private media chiefs.
The minister also said , he has decided to urge the media owners and chiefs not to conduct the media activities in a manner that would militate against racial and religious reconciliation , although nothing will be done to obstruct their political affiliations and expressions.
Mangala who is taking expeditious measures in regard to the media ministry has not been able to take such swift action as a finance minister .
Based on reports reaching Lanka e news , the former finance minister Ravi Karunanayake has made a bizarre unwelcome request from the president and the prime minister. That is , to bring the Lotteries Board , and Development Lotteries which were under him when he was the Finance minister within the purview of his new ministry of foreign affairs. It is to be noted after a ministerial portfolio is given , the gazette should notify the Institutions that are coming within the ambit of the various portfolios.
In any event , nowhere in the world Lotteries boards have come within the purview of a foreign ministry . In a country like Sri Lanka where exists a finance ministry which is sans the Central bank and Commercial banks ,there is a foreign ministry with Lotteries board under it , Minister in charge of Buddha sasana has powers to deliver death sentences , and Field marshals are digging cultivation fields , even anything crazier can take place.
In a strange Island like this , worse buffoonery and tomfoolery are to be expected naturally , when there are mad morons unable to do anything worthwhile for the country are holding sway , who after resigning their own political party and propelled themselves to victory riding on the shoulders of the people’s forces, are now somersaulting back in a vain effort to make their defeated discarded political party win again without showing any gratitude to the People’s forces who truly helped .
