Leader of the Opposition Sajith Premadasa says laws enforced in Singapore should be implemented in Sri Lanka promptly to eradicate the spread of narcotics.
MP Premadasa speaking in Naula today (21) said the country and the school system is riddled with narcotics adding that the country’s legal system must be amended and the judiciary strengthened immediately.
He said the education system must be overhauled towards digital technology methods and a new education policy must be implemented.
MP Premadasa also charged that Sri Lanka is transforming into a drug hub while authorities instead of nabbing large scale drug racketeers are checking bags of school children.
He stated that drug trafficking is being carried out from within prisons.
MP Premadasa also charged that government authorities are receiving various benefits and privileges from tobacco companies in Sri Lanka, and therefore are not taxing cigarettes and instead taxing the public.
