Keheliya denies forcing Mohan out
Minister of Mass Media and Information, Keheliya Rambukwella, said he did not force Chairman of the Sri Lanka Rupavahini Corporation, Mohan Samaranayake, to resign.
Speaking at the Cabinet media briefing held yesterday, the minister responded to the question of Samaranayake accusing him of forcing his resignation by saying, “I simply had a friendly chat with Mohan Samaranayake and we agreed that, he being the Presidential Media Spokesman,
it will not give him enough time to handle the responsibilities of the Chairman of Rupavahini.Being the media spokesman for the President is a full time job, he needs to travel with the President wherever he goes and coordinate events there; it would be too much for him to handle Rupavahini too.”
Minister Rambukwella said he has shortlisted the names of four suitable candidates for the post of Chairman of Rupavahini and will decide on a candidate once the matter has been discussed with the President.
