Minister Keheliya Rambukwella has said that measures are being taken to make changes to the system of advertising that could be harmful to the children’s minds.
The Minister said that the internet and television come within his portfolio and that he expects to launch a massive programme following the assumption of office by the President for his second term. He said that the dialogues in some cartoons and the messages in advertisements are not suitable for our society and culture.
The Minister expressed these views while participating in the Students’ Parliament of the Kandy Girl’s High School as the Chief Guest. The Minister said that women’s representation has dropped due to not being given the due respect for them.
