DS officers in Gampaha skip work in protest against Ranjan

Officers of the Gampaha District Secretariat refrained from work today in protest against Deputy Minister Ranjan Ramanayake.

Ramanayake had last week verbally abused the Divulapitiya Divisional Secretary.

Ramanayake had verbally abused Divulapitiya Divisional Secretary M.M.S Herath over an incident involving soil excavation.

Local television captured the Deputy Minister exchanging harsh words with the Divisional Secretary.

Herath later told a private television station she was ready to step down from the post as a result of the manner in which she was verbally abused. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Ranjan is a Peoples’ man . If he has acted sternly there should be something irregular. However he must have not lost his coolness. People have lot of faith on him for his sincerity.
