Take swift ac­tion against cor­rupt politi­cos

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - EDITORIAL -

We have wit­nessed ac­tion be­ing taken against politi­cians of the pre­vi­ous regime on cor­rup­tion charges which is com­mend­able. Many politi­cians of the pre­vi­ous govern­ment have been re­manded and cases filed against them. Some have been re­leased on bail while sev­eral oth­ers put be­hind bars. This in­cludes politi­cians and their close sup­port­ers.this is what the peo­ple of this coun­try ex­pected.

But the me­dia of­ten high­light the many com­plaints lodged against cor­rupt politi­cians of the present regime.we do not see swift ac­tion be­ing taken against them. How­ever, this is not good for those in power.they must prove they are not bi­ased.they at­tempt to pro­tect their co­horts and strike their op­po­nents with a vengeance. This might not be the ac­tual case. In con­tem­po­rary pol­i­tics, mud­sling­ing is very com­mon. Some of these com­plaints could be false. Per­haps, this might be an at­tempt to bring dis­re­pute to the govern­ment. Nev­er­the­less, such ef­forts are taken pos­i­tively by the govern­ment and it is now act­ing to sue cor­rupt politi­cians and their sup­port­ers.this is pre­cisely what the peo­ple of this coun­try need.
