Make the CM pay

The despicable act of Uva Province Chief Minister Chamara Sampath Dassanayake in forcing a female school principal to kneel before him, as punishment for the latter's refusal to admit a child to a school, on the recommendation of the CM, has rightfully raised a public outcry, compelling the President to order the IGP to conduct a full investigation into the matter.

A timely proposal

Custody. Care. Correction. You will find these three words in the emblem of the Sri Lanka Prisons Service. As the signboard of the Welikada Prison in Colombo proclaims “Prisoners are also Human”. Hence, the main objective of the prisons system is reforming individuals who have committed offences against society.

Ending bribery and corruption

Addressing a number of rallies for the Local Government Election, both President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minster Ranil Wickremesinghe have pledged to take action regarding the bond issue and other cases of corruption. They repeated this bold statement during separate addresses to the Nation as well.

Waiting for Godot?

Some Joint Opposition stalwarts, it appears, are on cloud nine after the Supreme Court determination that President Maithripala Sirisena’s tenure would be confined to five years.
