Tab programme for A/L students suspended
The cabinet has decided to suspend the programme to provide tabs for GCE advanced level students and teachers. The proposal to provide the tabs, made in 2017 budget, was not fulfilled.
The cost was estimated at Rs. four billion, and the president told the ministers at their meeting today (20) that the money should be used for a more productive purpose.
Lanka News Web has been revealing that the government had not followed the state procurement procedure and awarded the tender to an unqualified company.
This programme to provide modern technological knowledge and to raise computer literacy was crucial for the country’s future. However, what had been planned under it was swindling and commission taking by corrupt politicians and officials.
