SLRC loses Rs.131M because of Carlton Network: Ravi

E-mail Print
 
The Sri Lanka Rupavahini Corporation (SLRC) has lost Rs.131 million by transferring broadcasting rights to Carlton Sports Network (CSN) and thus giving up the sole broadcasting rights of sports programmes, United National Party (UNP) front-liner Ravi Karunanayake told Parliament yesterday.

He said this was a serious matter because losses incurred by state institutions were losses incurred by the people.

Minister Keheliya Rambukwella who responded said this issue was not relevant to the segment on oral questions. He said the Peoples Bank, National Insurance Trust Fund, National Construction Association of Sri Lanka, Sri Lanka Cricket, Sri Lanka Insurance Corporation, Central Environment Authority and the Health Education Bureau owed a total of Rs.7.9 million to the SLRC as at November 5 this year.

It has also been disclosed that the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) owed Rs.9.1 million to SLRC. (Yohan Perera)

What? Even UN could not punish them over war crimes, do you want the same to be punished by local court???

Take a simple example of the case Chief Justice S.Bandaranayke

Do not talk nonsense. Most of the people used to do shopping after hours and it was in par with major super markets - Only if one can remember what Sathosa was used to be. It was like JR's change to Sirima's rule

Judging by the massive continuos losses in all State Corporations, the present State concept seems to be ' A service for the Ruling Junta' and not the expected ' A Service for the People'.
Are there any profit making State Corporations?

Whatever said, CSN coverage has been good, why SLRC can not cover like CSN do, that is a pertinent question

It is good to raise these issues and find out people who are responsible. BUT has it been raised by the right person? We havent forgotten the millions SATHOSA lost during your days.
