Mano slams bank for suspending employees over event

Minister of National Coexistence Dialogue and Official Languages Mano Ganesan today slammed a private bank for suspending some of its employees over a war remembrance event.

Ganesan said the move by HNB was deplorable and definitely a very bad corporate practice.

The bank had reportedly suspended some employees for holding a war remembrance event in the bank premises, without the approval of the top management.

#HNB suspending employees for conducting event for “#remembering the #dead & who perished in the #war” is deplorable and definitely a very bad #corporate practice. #HNB motto is “Partner in Progress”. Progress without humanism? Partnership with chauvinistic considerations?” Ganesan tweeted.

The move also saw harsh reactions from civil society on social media. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. This Bank once owned by private sector is now controlled by the Government through EPF. In truth it is a Public Bank, with a private face. The act referred in this news should be disseminated well to the People of Northern origin to understand the Bank. Most Northerners prefer this Bank over State Banks.

  2. This guy was always a Tiger and he will always be one, dispite enjoying the perks of a ministerial post. Gallows is the option.

  3. A bank does not take part remembering mothers and fathers, Check the poster. Idiots like you only create probelms between societies.
