A certain top team member during the Yahapalanaya days referred to an area of activity where the segment of the workforce found short in physique could be employed.

 


There is a Ministry to look after this particular employment sector. By the way, the main character in this story is a white-collar bigwig holding a high post in it. He had assumed duties about three weeks ago. And the matters that appear to immediately concern him are a new office room and the suitable furnishings, apart from certain things necessary for his comfort.


He had said he did not want to sit at the desk his predecessor had used. He had wanted a more comfortable chair as well and had been rude to his subordinates who were not quick enough to attend to his demands. 


The bigwig had warned an executive holding the status of a commissioner at an official conference saying, “I will visit you with a baton if you fail to carry out my instructions.” The commissioner who had taken exception to the warning had retorted that they all were public servants and there was no need to use a baton at the workplace. 


All indications now are that an exciting denouement to this drama is in the offing, sources from Narahenpita area say.
