May 25, Colombo: The Sri Lankan government is taking measures to change the secretary posts of several ministries, according to local media reports.

The top most official who is expected to be removed from the post is the secretary of the Ministry of Economic Development Dr. P.B. Jayasundara.

Dr.Jayasundara is also the secretary of the Ministry of Finance and the secretary of the Treasury.

Ruling party Minister Wimal Weerawansa recently criticized the official calling him a killer of the country's economy.

Rumors spread that an elite politician was also angered last week due to behavior of Dr. Jayasundara.

Meanwhile, sources further said that the secretary of the Ministry of Health Dr. Nihal Jayathilaka is also to be removed from the position due to his failure to avoid the spate of strikes that took place in the past few weeks. The services in the government hospitals were paralyzed due to the nurses' strike and the public was severely inconvenienced.

However, Dr. Nihal Jayathilaka is expected to be transferred to another Ministry as secretary.
