Wimal condemns Ranil for comments on media

National Freedom Front Leader Wimal Weerawanse has made strong criticisms against Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe for his statement on the press in Parliament recently.

Addressing the media, he said:  ‘It was the journalists and media institutions that played a key role in changing the government. They have been granted freedom, while imposing limitations to journalists and media institutions which are in the habit of pinpointing the shortcoming of the government. It is not good governance to threaten those who are pinpointing mistakes and shortcomings of the government.
