Wayamba provincial council chase reporters

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.

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.
