(Lanka-e-News- 01.June.2018, 11.00PM) President Pallewatte Gamarala Sirisena’s latest brutal conspiracy is to transfer a most valuable asset which belonged to the nation since 1982 , to his daughter Chathurika Sirisena according to reports reaching Lanka e News.
This precious national asset is none other than the ‘Television Training Institute’ ( SL Mass media training Institute now) commenced at the same time as the Rupavahini Corporation which was launched in 1982.This training Institute was inaugurated to train Television Professionals.
This training Institute which was hitherto under the mass media ministry , following the last cabinet reshuffle when changing the subjects coming under the various ministries via the gazette notification , president Gamarala brought the Institute under the purview of the presidential secretariat on the sly in order to accomplish his conspiratorial aim.
It is a well known fact Pallewatte Gamarala a shameless liar wouldn’t have even in his dreams become a president but for fortuitous circumstances . Now after his becoming the president , his daughter and son in law fattened on death and despair so much so that they haven’t only a television channel now.Even the children of deposed and despised corrupt Mahinda Rajapakse had this crazy mania and launched a TV channel, and now Gamarala’s daughter and son in law are also afflicted with the same madness.
What Chathurika and son in law of Gamarala are trying to do is , sell the mass media training Institute to a foreign Co. and commence their television channel in lieu. By now Gamarala’s daughter and son in law have completed the necessary groundwork towards that . They are most busy these days to implement their plans this week or by next week.
Late J R Jayawardena a visionary leader , when introducing the television network into SL with Japanese aid , he obtained aid from Germany to train media and technology personnel too. That training Institute was the Sri Lanka Television training Institute (SLTTI)
By that time Germany had established a Foundation Institute in SL through the Federick Ebert foundation to train leaders. Therefore in order to make the tasks of the TV training Institute easy , the latter was brought under the administration of the Foundation , and operated within the same premises, which premises belongs to the government .
The Foundation Institute is under the president , and that is no issue because leadership training being under the president is understandable. Mass media Institute being brought under the president however is sheer madness. It is clear this is more than sheer madness vis a vis the conspiratorial ambitions and activities of Sirisenas which have come to light now. With the training Institute becoming a prey of Sirisenas , the chairman of Foundation Institute Sarath Kongahage will be kicked out.
The TTI which was under the administration of prominent visual media experts like Vasantha Obeysekera and Tissa Abeysekera was finally under late Dharmasena Pathiraja who named it SL mass media training Institute after broad basing its activities. Though Chaturika and president’s son in law were eyeing this Institute during the Pathiraja period , but owing to Pathiraja’s influence , they could n’t accomplish their selfish self seeking foul agenda.
Following the demise of Pathriaja , the Institute’s administration was entrusted to the care of visual media celebrity Vimukthi Jayasundara , the only Sri Lankan who is an international award winner and educated in an International Institute . But before anything further could be done , Gamarala’s thieving family including daughter and son in law have made all the arrangements to deal a ‘deadly blow’ to this Institute too.
If one has to secure a degree in mass media one must enter a University in SL. Yet it is a matter for rude shock , some of those who come out as mass media graduates do not know where the Art Gallery is.
In this backdrop , the Mass media Institute is the only one which awards a world recognized diploma in visual media to those who haven’t a University level qualification. A holder of this diploma can enter any recognized University in the world and secure a degree on that subject.
The annual fee for the Diploma course is Rs. 50, 000.00 only which is most reasonable and can be afforded by anyone. There are about 700 students following the course. There are also over 4000 students who followed their studies in this Institute , and are now employed at various media Institutions.
There is a surplus of television channels in SL , but only one training Institute , and that is the Mass media training Institute. It is such a valuable precious Institute that is going to be sacrificed and destroyed by the daughter and son in law of Gamarala for their selfish self centered gains.
At a time when this one and only Institution in SL is under threat of the conspiracies and cruel ambitions of Gamarala and his family , this is the time the four thousand or more students who finished their studies and the students now following the course in the Institute as well as the pro good governance masses should wage a struggle to rescue this Institution from this ravenous ruler and his greedy family who are pillaging and plundering this country without let or hindrance.
