Social media platform ban is suppression of anti govt views: Gammanpila


Leader of the Pivithuru Hela Urumaya (PHU) has charged that the government was attempting to suppress anti-government sentiments by banning social media platforms and urged the government to lift the ban immediately.

He was addressing a news briefing. Gammanpila said: "The violent incidents in Kandy are no more and the curfew has been lifted. The State of Emergency would be expired on Wednesday but the ban on social media is still in effect. The government which came to power to ensure freedom of expression attempts to suppress social media today hiding behind Kandy violence. We won't allow this to succeed. When youths have logged on, the President and Prime Minister were also seen already using Facebook. They have accessed social media during the ban. The social media is acceptable to the two leaders, but not it for the people."
