The removal of the Customs chief under suspicious circumstances created a sensation in the country recently.
Meanwhile, a story that has gone viral recently says that two other politicos are set to make similar dubious moves. The first to get this important piece of news is a JO stalwart. It says that the heads of Samurdhi and Excise Departments are to be replaced by two hand-picked persons past their sixties.
The Samurdhi job is to be placed in the hands of a person aged 73. The excise job too is to be offered to a similar elder spending his twilight years.
TU activists are already up in arms against these moves to offer high positions to retirees, when these positions are the dues of the young and experienced white-collar ones already in service. The JO stalwarts are also expected to take up these two issues, they say.
