Some more secretaries to be transferred soon

By Ajith Alahakoon

Secretaries to several ministries would be transferred shortly, government sources said yesterday.

Transfers would be effected on the grounds of inefficiency, clashes with administrative officers, disruptions and delays, non-cooperation in implementing government plans, the sources said.

The reason for the removal of Secretaries to the Ministries of Education and Cultural Affairs was the recent protest by artistes at the State Drama Festival Award Ceremony, sources. The secretaries of both ministers were accused of dereliction of duties and causing inconvenience to the artistes.
