The government was considering the possibility of declaring April 15 a Public and Mercantile holiday in view of the Sinhala-Hindu New Year, Public Administration Minister John Seneviratne said yesterday.

He said that it would be considered because the New Celebrations fall during the weekend this time.

“Due to the two days of the New Year celebrations on April 13 and 14 falling on the weekend (Saturday and Sunday) the government has paid attention to declare Monday April 15 as an additional holiday,” he said.( Jayantha Samarakone)

    if the new year falls on a weekend , it's really great so that it does not eat up the productive days of the week. However this minister same as most others encourage unproductivity. Does he have any idea the loss to economy by taking off a working day. I guess we need young blood in such entities.
