Double standards at SLRC


rupavahini cooperationThe Sri Lanka Rupavahini Corporation (SLRC) is reportedly adopting a double standard when charging monies for advertisements from the presidential election candidates.


According to reports, while only Rs.30,000 is being charged for a 30 second advertisement of President Mahinda Rajapaksa, a staggering Rs. 160,000 is being charged for an advertisement of Common Candidate Maithripala Sirisena with an equal run time.

Meanwhile, the SLRC has also ignored instructions by the Elections Commissioner and given only a limited amount of election advertisements to Sirisena’s campaign.

According to sources, President Rajapaksa’s advertisements are being granted on a credit basis.
