President Maithripala Sirisena said today he would cancel the circular issued by a former president making it mandatory for high-ranking public servants to be clad in western attire when reporting to work.

He said in future it would not be necessary to wear the blazer and tie except on special occasions should the need arise.

“I attended an annual Pirith ceremony held on December 31 in Polonnaruwa. It was almost midnight when I arrived at that place. I saw our divisional secretary in a tie listening to the chanting of Pirith. I asked him why a tie at this hour. I believe the circular issued by the former president may be the reason for doing so,” he said.

    This is the result of surrounding yourself with poor quality advisors especially when you are not too smart. Somebody please help our President before this country is destroyed.

    A very good decision, Mr. President. Cloths were made by man. A man can not be judged by the cloths one wears. It is how he carried himself that shows his qualities.

    At a time of economic and social challenges, this is what bothers our president. This government is so pathetic.
