Tamil Paper banned
The Home Ministry did not renew the license for the Tamil Paper Makkal Osai. There was no reason given. People suspected it has to do with the paper's extensive report on news of the Oppositions during the 12th Gen. Election.
After the defeat in election, PM Pak Lah claimed that he wanted to listen to people more. Maybe he has not learnt from the defeat. If freedom of speech is restrained, how could he ever listen?
