Government is committed to build an independent, impartial media tradition … Rambukwela

Media Minister Keheliya Rambukwella assumes duties

Media Minister Keheliya Rambukwella has assured that he would build an independent and impartial media tradition in the country.

He made this observation after assuming duties as the new Minister of Mass Media and Information at his ministry on Thursay August 13. Heads of media institutions, artists and journalists were present.

He said: “The Government would take measures to uphold media freedom, while strengthening the competitiveness among State media organisations.The government led by President Gotabay Rajapaksa is committed to uphold democratic rights of freedom of speech and provide space for the public to express their views. I will take necessary measures to protect freedom of speech.

Many are inquiring about State ministerial portfolios.  State ministers are empowered to serve specific targets aimed at developing the economy at large. Full powers have been entrusted to the state ministers to fulfill their task in their ministry subjects. We commend President Gotabaya Rajapaksa for defining State Ministries “precisely & specifically” so that they are fully empowered to carry out their assigned tasks, without ambiguity, while maximizing efficiency.

The Government would continue the smooth functioning of the Right to Information (RTI) Commission to protect the public’s right to obtain and access accurate information. The RTI Commission will continue and we have always been transparent even before the RTI was brought in. I can assure the right and the freedom of the public to know the truth will be protected.”
