Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and Minister of Education Akila Viraj Kariyawasam has decided to implement the tab distribution programme to school children, sources close to the Prime Minister said yesterday.

According to sources both Prime Minister and Minister Kariyawasam are of the strong view that government should implement tab distribution programme as it is one of the pledges made in its election manifesto.

Therefore, it is expected that the programme will get off the grounds during next school term.

Meanwhile, the government has decided to implement Gam Peraliya, Enterprise Sri Lanka and Grama Shakthi programme simultaneously.

President Sirisena is to monitor Grama Shakthi programme while village development programmes worth Rs. 80 billion will be implemented under the enterprise Sri Lanka programme. Gam Peraliya programme, which will be under the preview of Finance Ministry will go-ahead with 15 major projects. (Yohan Perera)

    The government has no clue on prioritizing their pledges at the past elections. There are much more important things they need to fulfill.They need to understand which students will benefit from a tab. Not everyone will need the same resource?

    when will Ravi K be arrested for accepting a bribe in the form of an apartment? Has the Prime Ministerial forgotten the pledge for good governance?

    Probably after removal of MR's favourites from legal system and after taking all MR and his clan to custody.

    This is like Hon. Prime Minister's Wouxwagen Car Factory. Ha...ha..ha..

    R.M. Somapala (principal) Friday, 29 June 2018 09:56 AM

    This is not atall important at this crucial stage. Build toilets to schools in the remote areas and get sufficient desk and chairs - I have seen in some schools children are seated in the ground.

    Ananda Sooriyaperuma [vice Principal] Saturday, 30 June 2018 09:51 PM

    You are 200% correct, these are the main requirements at present not Tabs, bullshit....

    Kalalani Thurairatnam [Teacher/Hatton Tamil School Saturday, 30 June 2018 09:55 PM

    In our region most of the Estate Schools don't have any toilet facilities, even Lady Teachers are finding very difficult and they too go to the tea bushes for call of nature. What a fate? Why this blind Education Minister don't think about our plight?

    Dont give it first to Royal College. Give it to Rural areas having electricity to charge the TAB.

    Hitler Friday, 29 June 2018 04:23 PM

    do not import tabs. China Plant in Si Lanka.

    Dr. (Mrs) Rukmani Wickramanayake Friday, 29 June 2018 09:59 AM

    Hay, stop your nonsense - first of all remove the taxes which is burdening the masses and bring down the COL. No one can eat Tabs and it is not important.

    nsathees Friday, 29 June 2018 10:40 AM

    Is this going to be country wide or only Minister's electorate?

    Saman Friday, 29 June 2018 10:59 AM

    The key point here is, how this government is going to fund this project. Freebie culture is destroying SL!

    BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 29 June 2018 02:19 PM

    Exactly.

    The president is against the distribution of tabs. In which century, does this man live?

    Rasheed Friday, 29 June 2018 11:19 AM

    Already negotiated the commission for the import of Tab.

    Gamarala Friday, 29 June 2018 11:22 AM

    Another crackpot idea of RW. Just hope the tabs will last until the elections.

    Haramanis Friday, 29 June 2018 03:47 PM

    Now somebody should complain to FCID and Bribery Commission - this is a blatent attempt to influence prospective voters

    John Friday, 29 June 2018 07:18 PM

    I'd like to know, what level of kickbacks for going ahead with this?

    nimalka Saturday, 30 June 2018 02:44 PM

    We dont need tabs,,,for school children,,the books are sufficient and anyway tabs will break in 3 to 6 months,,,we need taxes reduced please use ur head and do that,,reduce taxes including senior citizen taxes,,

    Banu Saturday, 30 June 2018 03:13 PM

    Me we.. ge putho tab one na minissunnta 3 inWeela hariyata kannada Tika wade salssawapalla.

    S.R. Gamage (Former Director of Education) Saturday, 30 June 2018 10:01 PM

    Hon. Minister please come and visit our schools in our area (Daraniyagala) most of the schools lacking toilet facilities, no proper futnitures, even no black boards in some schools. Rather than fulfilling these requirements you are talking about Tabs. What is the Logic Sir? Means you are only planning to support Royal College like schools. Oh God Save our Nation.
