Incentives proposed for N-E public servants
COLOMBO:President Mahinda Rajapaksa said on Tuesday that the next
Security Council meeting would focus on providing a common security
programme for Government servants in the North and East.
He said it was imperative that the Government provides security for
public servants in the two provinces in the face of terrorist threats.
The Government will also provide incentives for these public servants.
The President expressed these ideas during a meeting with key
officials of the Sri Lanka Administrative Service.
He said the extensions of service granted to officers aged over 60
deprived promotions to younger public servants. In the future, the
Cabinet will have to approve such recruitment and extensions.
