The President has ordered the authorities of Sri Lanka Rupavahini Cooperation to cancel the “yatha rupa” ( meaning reality) program saying the program is criticising the astrology.
This program, which was launched on Thursday nights at 10.00 pm as an educational program, started at the beginning of August, 2016. In order to open a discussion on myth beliefs, it was programmed to emphasise alternative ideas through intellectual resources rather than popular opinions.
However, President Maithripala Sirisena has displeasure with this program and has said that as a government media the SriLanka Rupavahini Cooperation should be promoting the Astrology rather than criticising.
