Closing down TNL tower is dragging the island back to dark era: Buddhika

Buddhika-Pathirana-700-01

UNP MP Buddhika Pathirana has charged that the closure of TNL Transmission Tower is dragging the island nation back to the dark era.

He made this observation addressing the House on the question raised by JO Leader Dinesh Gunawardena. In his speech he recalled how TNL "Janahanda" programme, conducted by him, had provided the platform for many politicians.

He added that the Mass Media Minister and the Prime Minister should have been informed and their consent obtained prior to action against any media institution.

He said: "Can we control the media by sending police in this modern era? Besides, was the Law and Order Minister informed when Police raided the TNL premises? I am ashamed. We did not come to power to behave in this manner. This should stop immediately."
