Let us keep it simple, says Public Administration Minister

COLOMBO: Public Administration and Home Affairs Minister Karu Jayasuriya yesterday directed all officials under his Ministry to desist from spending money unnecessarily for public functions organised by his ministry.

“Let us keep it simple and dignified without pandals, garlands and musical shows with blaring noise,” the Minister appealed.

Hoisting the National Flag and singing the National Anthem is sufficient at public functions, he said.

“Let us use the money we spend for ‘gala functions’ for something that is beneficial to the public. All public functions should be simple and manifest national pride,” Jayasuriya said.

He also underlined the need for the meeting agenda’s to be kept as brief as possible leaving room for more productive work.

“Let us initiate a new culture in public service” he said. The Minister said unless it is a function relating to a school and students come on their own accord, schoolchildren should not be used for public functions during weekdays affecting their studies.
