Public servants to learn Sinhala and Tamil

    JUSTMAN,

    I agree 100%.

    with English all the trouble will be over. Then we can all live as Sri Lankans.

    But this or ant gov. will never agree cos the people will know what is going on .

    Knowledge is power.

    As long as the masses are dumb the gov. can fool around and not get cought. Thus the present situation.

    Dose anyone think this is an ethnic problem? No No No

    This is a matter of control over the Masses.

    What about English? If we all started to use English more widely this whole problem would not have been there. Language requirements(inhale,Tamil & English) should be made compulsory long time ago when employed in the government sector. Why so late to implement something like this, hope this will work this time. Will pray that this will not be another NATO (no action talk only)

    English would be the better medium, it`s the Language of Commerce and is spoken Worldwide.

    This is really a short cited statement. I am very sorry to say.

    For instant, say that LTTE has managed to create Tamil Eelam; are they going to chase out all the Sinhalese, or will they accommodate them with absolute equality, which means including language rights!

    As for the title article, I have heard similar noices before, I will believe it when it is implemented!
