Sri Lanka: The Wayamba Development and Buddasasana Minister Gamini Jayawickrama Perera is planning to stop private tuition on Sundays and Poya Days to make Daham School Education compulsory for children by submitting a Cabinet Paper with the signatures of all the Cabinet Ministers.
These views were expressed during a media briefing after participating in the National ceremony to appreciate the creative talents of Daham Pasal students.
The Minister further said that this decision had been taken not only for Buddhist children but also for Hindu, Catholic and Muslim children on the request of religious leaders of all religions with the intervention of the Ministers who have been empowered with the relevant religious subjects.
Though the relevant proposal was submitted to the Cabinet, the approval from the Cabinet could not be obtained due to the prevailing political situation in the country.
