President Mahinda Rajapaksa, who was present at the parliamentary sessions today asked United National Party (UNP) parliamentarian Eran Wickramaratne to submit a report on the Ministry Secretaries doing part-time jobs as directors in private organisations.
The President made this request after Mr. Wickramaratne said it was wrong for Ministry Secretaries to engage in such activities.
“Give us a report on it. Then, we can look into it,” the President said while being seated in his chair. The mike was not switched on when he made this remark and as such it was unlikely it would be reported in Hansard. (Kelum Bandara and Yohan Perera)
