Six cabinet ministers of the present government and eleven ministry secretaries should be sent home and if he had power he would definitely sack them says Prof. Sarath Wijesuriya. He said people expected a civilized administration when the two main parties got together but now there are very serious complaints against the present government.
He made these observations speaking at the commemoration ceremony of Dr. N.M. Perera.
Speaking further Prof. Wijesuriya said, “I receive 10 to 15 telephone calls daily stating the such and such Secretary is a close associate of Basil Rajapaksa, so and so who is an Additional Secretary had done business with Namal Rajapaksa and it is the same old lot who have been appointed to various posts and asking whether it is ‘good governance’. If I have power I would immediately remove 6 from the cabinet and send home 11 ministry secretaries.
A civilized administration was necessary and the two main parties have come together to form a government. However, all including me have a serious criticism against the present government.
