Deputy Education Minister Wijayamuni Soysa was attending a meeting at a school in Bandarawela last Thursday to discuss issues related to appointing a principal to a school in the area. Media representatives were also invited along with the staff and parents. Before the event began, the Deputy Minister said he wanted his speech to be reported from start to finish. The journalists said it was difficult to carry out the Minister’s diktat due to space constraints.
Deputy Minister Soysa seemed not convinced and ordered the reporters to leave the meeting.What a way to communicate with the public!, the Sunday Times ‘Talk at the Cafe Spectator’ column reported.
