Minister of Public Relations Mervyn Silva said, he had received Rs.300 million for the development programmes of the area within a day of assuming duties as Kelaniya electoral organiser.

“I will start this journey with 300 million rupees of money for this year,” he said.

Addressing a meeting at Kelaniya on Monday he said according to his ministry he had the power to implement development programmes anywhere in the country.

He said that Public Relations was applicable to the welfare of everyone from birth to death and it comes within his purview and that his portfolio covered a wide range of responsibilities.

“Great teachers like the Buddha, Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohamed and the gods did not have a specific subject assigned to them. They had limitless responsibilities,” he said.

He said that President Mahinda Rajapaksa considered it as the most appropriate to appoint him as the Minister of Public Relations.

“In India it is a portfolio assigned to the Prime Minister. There is no cause for anxiety to anyone and I will do the needful to the incomplete works and unauthorised works,” he said. (Chaturanga Pradeep)

    Watch out Mervyn ! The higher you jump the greater the fall. Many in the past have thought that they will be in the seat of power for ever, but alas !. It was not to be so.

    The only difference is the lords and gods didn't have a son like Malaka Silva! He is handling all subjects in Indian red light district minister would handle! Why do you love us so much? We don't want your service, we are happy with our gods. So to prove you do what public want, can you please read these reviews and resign today? Public relation should not be by force! If there are 100 comments 100 will be against you, so why are you still imposing you on is? Because you make 500 million using our 300 million tax money! I challenge you to submit a list on 31st dec 2014 to show us what you did with 300 million?
