    What does he know about telecoms / telecom regulation? After Prof. Rohan Samarajeewa left, it has been one political appointment after another all of whom have been clueless on what telecom regulation is!

    Muditha, why do you say this guy is not capable. He is a senior public servant with overseas postgraduate qualifications. I think he can do a better job than most of political appointees.

    We only hope he will not end up developing "Palpitation" trying to overcome political pressure being mounted on him when carrying out his duties.
