State Owned Radio station Promotes Ruling Party Supporters


State owned Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation (SLRC) has promoted 15 supporters of the ruling coalition Sri Lanka Freedom Party reports Sri Lanka Mirror.

The SLM reports follows:

Employees of the Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation are disturbed by the sudden promotions given to 15 activists of the SLFP-affiliate Nidahas Sevaka Sangamaya, according to reports reaching Sri Lanka Mirror.

When contacted, a top SLBC official said none of them had been given promotions, but that their designations changed from controller to assistant director.

Employees question as to why only 15 controllers who are activists of the SLFP TU have had their designation name changed.

They note the SLFP TU has gone to court over the promotions given to 72 JSS activists a day before the end of the 100-day government, adding the management has given the latest promotions to make things even.

Meanwhile, a discussion has reportedly taken place at the SLFP headquarters at Darley Road, Colombo to grant promotions to 20 more party activists at the SLBC.
