Retired Major General Nanda Mallawaarachchi said today his appointment as Secretary of the new Public Law and Order Ministry would in no way lead to the militarization of the Police Department.

He gave this assurance when asked whether the appointment of a former army officer would lead to the militarisation of the Police Department.

The retired Major General said he would continue the work done by Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa and that if any policies had to be changed, he would do so fearlessly.

“First I will continue the work of Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa. If the policies need to be changed, I will do so fearlessly. The police service must be people-friendly so that the people could interact with the police with confidence. It is only then that the police can obtain proper information of misdeeds happening around them. While the good work done by the police is commended, offenders should be punished. The police are not paid a good salary therefore I will study their salary scales and address these issues,” retired Major General Mallawaarachchi told the media after assuming duties as the Ministry Secretary.(Ajith Siriwardana)
