General Secretary of the ruling Sri Lanka Podu Jana Peramuna (SLPP) MP Sagara Kariyawasam speaking in Parliament yesterday (21) said that it was high time that the government brought about laws to regulate information shared through social media.

Kariyawasam said that social media was being used to discredit the government and the head of state in the same measure meted out to former President Mahinda Rajapaksa, several years back.

Kariyawasam also said that institutions should be established under the law to fact-check information shared on social media.

The MP also said that a majority of information shared on social media at present was hate material aimed at discrediting the government.
