Learning Another Language Could Help National Unity

Apr 19, 2011 8:56:07 PM - thesundayleader.lk

Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne says that learning the language of another race could enhance national unity.

Dr. Senaratne addressing a public meeting had said that it was a shame that most people were able to converse in Sinhala and English and not in Tamil.

According to him, the lingual problem was one of the main reasons for the ethnic issue faced by the country.

The Minister pointed out that the ethnic issue has resulted in the delay in national development and has caused the loss of an uncountable number of lives and property.
