Parliament Nov. 27 (Daily Mirror) - Arrangements have been made to provide sanitary napkins to girls in schools from next year, Minister of Education Susil Premajayantha informed Parliament today.

The Minister said the programme would be a corporate social responsibility (CSR) project. 

"Sanitary napkins will be given to 300,000 girls as a pilot project. Around one million girl children will be given sanitary napkins later," the Minister said.

    When Sajith proposed this in 2019 because Scotland and some other countries did it, this same Joker Minister and his party SLPP ridiculed Sajith and even called him PadMan. Oh how the tables turn.

    Used sanitary napkins should be put in separate bins and disposed appropriately. Please make arrangements are made accordingly.

    Sandy Monday, 27 November 2023 01:13 PM

    Provide sanitary napkins made from eco friendly materials otherwise disposal would become a problem

    Now get away from this "free" culture and political gimmicks. If you really care about this, simply make this item and raw material to produce the same totally duty free. That will make things affordable to every one.

    You said no time to deal with anything other than education, requested salary anomalies to be addressed by PC's, who don't have access to direct revenue, YOU NOW SHOWING INTEREST IN STUDENT'S SANITARY NAPKINS!!!??? WHY DON'T YOU LEAVE THAT TO THE PC's!!!??? NOW INTERESTED IN VOTES!!!??? Self-Serving Crooked Politicians!!???

    Parents Monday, 27 November 2023 08:28 PM

    Didn't they look after this need all this time?? After all it's a natural, normal thing! Haven't you seen the other many, more important needs of these children??

    Giving everything free , what a waste of money. These girls have got enough money for their salon visits and designer clothes. Some company that manufactures sanity items will benefit.

    Like every other promise of Ranil, this too will come in the future, which has been coming for so many years, and will never arrive.
