What a Dip Stick our Education Minister???

See the news report below about Minister of Education Akila Viraj Kariyawasam has made about the Kuliyapitiya child. Is this a responsible Minister or what? Even if the Child or the Mother is infected with HIV, you handle the situation with due care & dignity to people concerned without making irresponsible statements. He must understand people do have fundamental rights which cannot be violated by the state or anybody else. Also he has said the government will care for his education. It is the duty of the government for all children be given care for Education!!!

Kuliyapitiya Child Could Be Infected With HIV Since He Sleeps Under Mother's Protection, Says Education Minister


Education Minister Akila Viraj Kariyawasam yesterday called for the separation of the child in Kuliyapitiya who was denied a school due to HIV rumors from his mother.
"The Zonal Education Director told me that the mother has HIV" the Minister said.
He then went to make a strange statement, saying that the child could be infected with HIV since he was sleeping under his mother's protection.
The government will seek a court ruling to transfer the child to probationary care, the Minister said, adding that the government will care for his education.
