Mar 16, Colombo: State Minister of Highways and Road Development, Ranjan Ramanayake says he has informed his ministry officials not to use his name or picture in boards opened along with development projects.

"These are done with public tax money not my money," the Minister said.

In a letter to the Chairman of the Road Development Authority (RDA), Minister Ramanayake noting that the RDA is conducting many development works across the island that should be appreciated, expressed his gratitude to the Chairman and the Staff for their commitment.

The Minister reminded that the money spent on those development projects is the taxes taken by the government from the money people earn through their livelihood amidst great difficulties.

Minister Ramanayake further said he rejects promoting self-image through the people's money and his policy is not to include his name in campaigns for government's development projects.

Accordingly, the Minister requested RDA to refrain from using his name or picture in boards opened to mark road development projects implemented by the Road Development Authority.
