    What about a court martial?

    Dear All,
    The reason is absolutely the way the chairmen and Board of Directors apponted to ppublic institutions. The way it happens now is hand picking knowns leaving disciplined and trained people out of every activity. The knowns are obviously those culprits who come forward to help govt during elections. They do not help electioneering, nor possess any kind of skill to run an institute properly.

    Hereafter, please advertise the positions available, get them to make a presentation in public on his proposals to develop the country face an interview in public and select the best avaialble.

    If the govt follows this methodlolgy, the country in no time will be the wonder land in Asia. Dr V U Ratnayake

    Who is responsible? Minister or the management appointed by him.

    This is a natural phenomena when there is a change. But don't forget the old proverb that says, 'New broom sweeps clean, but the old broom only knows the corners'.

    Friday, 07 May 2010 12:31 PM

    Start from the former minister too

    Friday, 07 May 2010 01:57 PM

    Can somebody enlighten me, if Keliya Rambukwella, the present media minister was in charge of the ministry under which the foriegn employment bureau comes. There was a big fraud occured cheating the Lankan house maids who went to Kuwait. They were played out on the insurance scheme then by the same bureau.

    Yes, v true

    Friday, 07 May 2010 03:26 PM

    Well done. Please clean up the rest of the public institutions too.

    Friday, 07 May 2010 03:58 PM

    Not only former, how about all the current ministers and deputy ministers. Do you think they have been handling funds ethically? I say, that might be the bail-out we so badly need!
