Cartoonists a special and unique class of journalists - President

Lauding the role of cartoonists, President Mahinda Rajapaksa asserted that all politicians should have the strength and goodwill to appreciate the humour depicted in the creative works of cartoonists.

The President made this assertion when he met Cartoonists of the country’s newspapers at a function where a publication named ‘Mul Pituwata Genna Cartoon’ (Cartoons for the First Page), compiled from cartoons collected from the country’s newspapers, had been presented to him at Temple Trees last Friday.

He said that cartoonists who had no political bias in them were a special and unique class of journalists. “They performed an arduous task of giving the readership a strong political message with a right mix of humour in it” the President added.

Media and Information Minister Anura Priya Darshana Yapa, Lake House Chairman Bandula Padmakumara and leading Cartoonists of the country’s newspapers also participated at the meeting.
