Electronic media overly critical of government - President

Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena said the electronic media was overly critical of his government and asked them not to misuse the freedom they have been granted under his rule.

Touting the state telecommunications regulator, Sirisena said he has observed that the electronic media devotes 80 per cent of their news bulletin to criticise his government.

“What I say is that they have the right to be critical of the government, but give sometime for coverage of government’s development programmes,” he said.
