Minister Keheliya Rambukwella has stated that the harm done by certain TV channels is similar to the harm caused by drug traffickers.

He said that media can cause immense harm comparable to the drugs available in locations near schools. He said that the current media is different from what prevailed 15-20 years ago. He said that today the media is still approaching the place where it should be. The Minister expressed this view at the Media Day function held at the Maha Maya College in Kandy. Prof. Rohana Lakshman Piyadasa also addressed the gathering. A number of intellectuals graced the occasion.
