Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has decided to bring under his supervision several ministries, which were subjected to bureaucracy during the Rakapaksa regime, that have not been able to achieve the targets set for the first two quarters.

This decision has been taken as some ministries which were exposed to rigid bureaucracy during the last regime had not yet been converted to suit the good governance concept of the United National Front Government.

Some activities of the Foreign Affairs Ministry were taken over during the 100 day programme and certain activities of the Education ministry have already been taken over. (Anjula Mahika Weerarathna)

    Sene Saturday, 26 March 2016 03:51 PM

    Dictators don't privatize they nationalise so they can loot more like MR did

    Lal Saturday, 26 March 2016 04:01 PM

    Hiran Sunday, 27 March 2016 07:35 AM

    PM already appointed his cousin as the high commissioner to the uk. This is what happened when he took over the foreign ministry. Also many other cousins are Ministers now. Family politics began again via DM iOS App

    AnaMalu Saturday, 26 March 2016 10:02 AM

    The most badly managed is the Ministry of Finance. This too has to be taken under the PM. NOW!

    Sapu Saturday, 26 March 2016 10:02 AM

    Are you living in NKOREA? What's wrong with privatization?

    Sapu Saturday, 26 March 2016 10:04 AM

    manu is against privatization Becuase his masters will no longer able to loot the SOEs anyore

    Sapu Saturday, 26 March 2016 10:05 AM

    It's good that the PM is taking over education and foreign Ministries as he has experience in them before

    Lal Saturday, 26 March 2016 10:08 AM

    AnaMalu Saturday, 26 March 2016 10:26 AM

    Oh! That is good news. Can we reduce the size of the "Jumbo Cabinet"?

    AnaMalu Saturday, 26 March 2016 10:28 AM

    Good! Send the Minister of Education for a crash course on AIDS. He almost messed up the future of a little kid. Thanks Trinity College, you can to his help.

    K.Senaratne Saturday, 26 March 2016 10:42 AM

    Educated Lankans support privatizations. Only uneducated idiots who want their politicians to loot SOEs are against it

    K.Senaratne Saturday, 26 March 2016 10:44 AM

    MR had done enough damage with his backward nationalization to help his relatives loot SOEs like SriLankan etc.

    K.Senaratne Saturday, 26 March 2016 10:46 AM

    The PM was a deputy FM as well as Edu Minister. He can pull these back to top. He will also privatize loss making debt ridden companies that were looted by MR.

    Ravi Saturday, 26 March 2016 11:15 AM

    my dear all please remember we gain our country back now we are giving it back sorry for not understanding this.

    SLC Sunday, 27 March 2016 02:01 PM

    Please Mr,PM look into the current happenings at Srilankan Catering fast, before it turns to incur losses, something is very fishy over there,

    Onlooker Saturday, 26 March 2016 11:24 AM

    Oh yes, like his famous white paper on efucation

    Onlooker Saturday, 26 March 2016 11:25 AM

    OMG Saturday, 26 March 2016 11:37 AM

    Privatization and dictatorship are opposite things.

    mangala Saturday, 26 March 2016 11:39 AM

    I am screwed. let me complain MS. If no MS I have MR. via DM Android App

    Sam Saturday, 26 March 2016 11:52 AM

    Very good. Please bring the ministry of education also under you. This is the time we must start to teach our kids subjects like how to live peacefully and how to resolve problems without using violence in schools. The society is becoming so violent and it's time to save the next generation.

    Has Saturday, 26 March 2016 01:01 PM

    True. RK is going to bankrupt the country like he did to Sathosa. This should stop soon.

    Sharon Saturday, 26 March 2016 01:06 PM
