PROPOSAL FROM PRESIDENT, TO TELECAST ALL TELE- DRAMAS AFTER 9 P.M
The President Mahinda Rajapaksa, had revealed at a cabinet meeting that most Tele-dramas which are telecast in various channels depict wrong impressions in the minds of school going children. As a resort to keep away many viewers as possible watching Tele-dramas it has been suggested to telecast them after 9.pm. This was revealed by the Media Minister Keheliya Rambukwella at Thursday’s cabinet decision meeting.
In this regard the Minister has made inquiries from various TV channels. He was of the view that even if the Authorities of TV channel do agree, there is a lot of doubt about a positive response from the sponsors/advertisers to this suggestion. Hence the proposal of the President would have to be further discussed.
It was heard over the media that the President had expressed his concern over the word ‘thamuse’ said over a number of times when he had accidentally happened to watch a Tele-drama and had deeply conveyed his concern and unpleasantness over the language used.
