In the aftermath of the Cabinet reshuffle, the government is now moving to replace some ministry secretaries, it is learnt.

The government replaced nine Cabinet portfolios, and eight state and deputy ministry posts on two occasions.

Political sources said some ministry secretaries would also be replaced soon. However, it is learnt that there will be no change in the secretarial posts in the Finance and Foreign Ministries.

A new secretary is also likely to be appointed to the Mahaweli Development Ministry assigned to Minister Mahinda Amaraweera. (Kelum Bandara)

    The Mahaweli Ministry is one of the most important ministries for the economy of Sri Lanka. Present Secretary and Additional Secretary are completely clueless and do not understand that construction work should be done to quality standards. They must be replaced sooner rather than later

    Really appreciate this move, the Secretaries are the main keys and they should act professionally and honestly serve the nation and the Govt.

    If the secretaries act wisely, automatically the Ministers and Deputy Ministers will go on the right way.
