Public servants should not pursue personal interests

Home Affairs Minister Vajira Abeywardena yesterday said government servants in provincial administration should not think of their personal interests and work for the betterment of their areas.

He said public servants should devote their entire time and manpower to implement government policies to benefit the people.

“We initiated major development activities and construction projects in 332 divisional secretariats within 25 districts,” he said.

“Every rupee we received from the central government is used to develop the region and uplift the public . We allocated Rs. 350 billion for all divisional secretaries to implement development projects,” the Minister said.

He said the media highlighted only the shortcomings.

“They do not give much publicity for out development projects all over the country,” he said.
