MP Dullas Alahapperuma said social media websites had become a threat to the Government and that it was planning to introduce laws to ban social media websites.
He told a news briefing held today that the Government had made several attempts to ban social media websites but it was unsuccessful because the people kept agitating against such moves.
“Government has now realized that social media websites were an obstacle to their survival and that is why it is attempting to introduce laws to ban social media in Sri Lanka,” the MP said. (Sheain Fernandopulle)
ACTUALLY SOCIAL MEDIA IS LIKE A MIRROR WHERE ONE CAN SEE THEIR OWN FAULTS AT A GLANCE AND THEY WILL HAVE OPPORTUNITY TO GET THAT CORRECTED RIGHT AWAY...... (ONLY FOR INTELLIGENT PEOPLE)

I don’t think they would be that stupid because that would lead to the beginning of the end.

Well a challenge to government . TryAnd await a good return. Instead of curbing this and that first and foremost consider MS and RW as losers. Then instead of making matters you still have time to recitify errors. Actions speak louder than words being bandied around.
