Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake yesterday charged that Minister Lakshman Kiriella had appointed 94 persons as Coordinating Secretaries and 56 as Advisors to the Ministry of Highways.
He said all the 56 Advisors had been appointed in the Kandy District, which is the Minister’s electorate.
He charged that some of them had not passed the GCE Ordinary Level examination.
“Usually a Minister has around 15 persons as a personal staff, however he had appointed 94 as Coordinating Secretaries, we don't understand what kind of work are there,” Mr. Dissanayake added.
He said these incidents had made clear that the Yahapalanaya Government also govern the country in an uncivilized manner, as it was done by the previous regime. (Yohan Perera and Darshana Sanjeewa)

This is a classic case of lunatics running the asylum.

I think there is no Yahapalanaya in this government. It was only a name plate that they used to come to power.

We thought the previous government was bad and voted them out. Sadly this government seems to be worst. The politicians are looking after themselves enjoying every possible perk and also looking after their kith and kin. People are burdened with higher taxes, increasing prices and no benefits. At least earler the roads were built. It is the people who are becoming the joke by voting for rogues of whatever party. We are loosing faith in the whole political and electoral system. Very soon we'll be citizens of Banana Republic of Sri Lanka. The lion flag will be replaced with a flag showing bananas.
