Survivors of the social network played a major role in the overthrow of the Rajapakse regime. Speaking at a seminar in Colombo today, Media Ministry Secretary Nimal Bopage said the social networks were ready to be suspended. This is a blow to Facebook’s role in promoting good governance. The end of Rajapakse’s rule was the attempt to block social networks.
Evidently, these acts of cowardice are the work of some conspirators.
