Matale District Secretary D.P.G.Kumarasiri who retired yesterday after completing an illustrious service of 33 years, handed over his official vehicle and documents to the relevant heads of department and returned home by bus.

Mr. Kumarasiri was a senior officer in the Public Administration service had served in Anuradhapura and Nuwaraeliya districts before being appointed as the District Secretary for Matale.

During the send-off party, he said , "I am happy because I was able to send the resignation papers to the secretary of the Ministry of Home affairs 5 months prior to my retirement at a time when government officers tend to seek extensions of service before retirement. I got used to working intimately with the staff rather than giving orders. I did not criticize government policies and acted to implement them. I request all other officers to discharge their duties with commitment without committing mistakes” (M.W.Somaratna)

    I heard from a friend of mine who worked for BOI that Sajin Vass Gybawardhane's father did the same thing when he was asked to give resignation by CBK's government. So father-like-son.... See how sincere the son has been, particularly making all efforst to discipline our high commissioner in UK.

    Yahapalana leaders should learn from this kind of honest and straightforward officers. I am happy about him because I was also from the same service (SLAS).

    "..officers to discharge their duties with commitment without committing mistakes”

    Yes, this is O.K. However, this officer's act clearly shows that he is not aware of his entitlements for his position. He should have requested his driver to drop him at his residence after the office although he retired on the same day.

    one in a million, well done sir.

    He is the gentleman par excellence is an example for other officers. This is a rare occurrence in public service in our era.

    gamini Tuesday, 04 April 2017 09:40 AM

    why only Yahapalana does'nt your Chintana man have anything to learn from this honest man.

    Jema Tuesday, 04 April 2017 09:50 AM

    It doesn't pay to be honest.

    mary Tuesday, 04 April 2017 08:40 PM

    May be it is quicker to go home by public transport than by the official vehicle.

    Not done. Someone should have picked up this gentleman from office and dropped at his home. via DM Android App

    Mr. Somaratna, you are a great example for today politicians and government workers, I can remember as a child, when Dr Dahanayaka lost his PM post he got into a CTB buss and came to Galle from Temple trees, also he was standing till Atluthgama, as he had refused the seat offered by an another passenger. This was in the next day papers.

    Kaboos Tuesday, 04 April 2017 12:54 PM

    One day you will rewarded for your honesty .

    Bandula Jayaratne Tuesday, 04 April 2017 01:06 PM

    When Dr Colvin R de Silva heard that he had been deposed as a minister in the Sirimavo government he was somewhere in Badulla. Promptly surrendering his official vehicle to the GA concerned, Dr Colvin returned to Colombo by train ~@~

    Most SLankans do not appreciate goods deeds

    arunalu Tuesday, 04 April 2017 01:55 PM
