Wayamba provincial council chase reporters

First time in the history of Sri Lanka the Wayamba provincial council has chased the media reporters and journalists from the council gathering
If a false has been reported the relevant ministers should take legal actions against the reporters nevertheless sending all the reporters from the council is violating the right to public information.
In a situation where the right to information bill is secured and public discussions have been erupted the behavior of the Wayamba provincial council is great injustice to the people which can be considered as a bad precedence.
The chairman of the Wayamba provincial council Tikiri Adhikari ordered the reporters and journalists who came to report the monthly gathering to stay out from the council accusing them for reporting false news.
This would be the first instance in the 28 years history of the Wayamba provincial council to order the reporters to stay out.  
Wayamba provincial council transport and highways minister Gunadasa Dehigama alleged false news has been published in the media.
Supporting his statement chief minister Dharmasiri Dasanayake said, many false information’s were reported in the media about him hindering his reputation.
Opposition leader Prasanna Shamal Senarath objected about a news of him which was published last week which he was not involved.
