Wed, Sep 13, 2023, 07:05 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Sept 13, Colombo: President’s Secretary Mr. Saman Ekanayake has emphasized the critical importance of enhancing communication and collaboration between government officials and political authorities at both district and divisional levels.

In a letter addressed to all Secretaries to the Ministries, Provincial Chief Secretaries, District Secretaries and Divisional Secretaries, Mr. Ekanayake highlighted the concerns regarding the existing gap in effective coordination between government and semi-government institutions, District Development Committees and Divisional Development Committees.

This disconnect has posed significant challenges, obstructing the successful execution of vital development projects, President’s Media Division said.

Furthermore, Mr. Ekanayake’s letter draws attention to the persistent complaints filed by Chairpersons of District Development Committees and Divisional Development Committees with President Ranil Wickremesinghe. These complaints have raised issues related to the obstacles faced in development work, arising from insufficient coordination between political authorities and government officials.

As a resolution to these ongoing challenges, the letter urges that future development plans, devised by government and semi-government institutions, incorporate the active involvement and cooperation of District Development Committees and Divisional Development Committees. This approach aims to ensure that these committees are well-informed and actively engaged in the decision-making processes concerning development activities.

Mr. Ekanayake’s communication reflects the government’s commitment to streamlining development initiatives, boosting efficiency and ensuring the successful execution of essential projects across Sri Lanka.
