News: Ethnic co-education, a good idea
Posted Date: 28/03/2018 (Wednesday)
Minister for National Coexistence, Dialogue and Official Languages Mano Ganesan is right on the money when he says schools which are exclusively for one race or linguistic group “foster” communal disharmony. Ganesan’s attention to the issue has been drawn after several schoolchildren were accused of posting racist and inflammatory messages on Social Media before and during the attacks against the Muslim community in and around Kandy earlier this month. Ganesan has promised to bring in a Cabinet paper to make the changes as soon as possible. The Minister’s thinking is right, and we as a people must take a good hard look at what our children are being taught in school and how we can better foster a Sri Lankan nationality in the schools.

News: We have no National Policy to combat bribery and corruption right now
Posted Date: 27/03/2018 (Tuesday)
Q The public, the media and politicians charge more often than not that the CIABOC has failed to bring before the law those big time perpetrators like politicians and top officials in the public sector who had allegedly engaged in bribery and corruption. What do you have to say on this allegation? The CIABOC solely and entirely investigate, establish a case and file charges against suspects of bribery or corruption on the availability of evidence.
