  • The government is committed to fill the existing vacancies requiring Tamil officers in government institutes to ensure the language rights of all citizens, said National Languages and Social Integration Minister Vasudeva Nanayakkara.

    The minister was speaking at a programme on ‘People’s Movement for Bilingual Social Activity’, organized by the National Languages and Social Integration Ministry in Badulla recently.

    The minister said Sinhala and Tamil languages are official languages in the country. Therefore, trained bilingual officers must render an efficient and satisfactory service for the public.

    The people can complain about the infringement of language rights to the State Language Commission, supreme court, magistrate court ombudsman and the Human Rights Commission, the minister added.
