Can you trust top public servants ?
Posted on August 25th, 2019

Today Sunday paper carried headline captioned Pre Election bonanza for top public Servants

More categories to get duty free vehicle permits equivalent to 22million

We investors have frequent contact with public servants to get clearances for investment projects 

Top public servants are often critical about the Yahapalana government and the ruling parties

They expect a more dynamic leader with minimum reg to FR so that they can also carve  out sizable amounts from the gratuities which investors offer to politicians 

In order to get the investors to agree with their demand, projects are stalled

Few important institutions purposely delay the projects which affect the growth rate in the country.

I am not sure whether the government  offering them duty-free vehicles will change their mind during voting time.

The government should totally abolish the duty-free facility and provide the income to poor masses to give subsidy for transport and staple food items

    I have very little faith in our politicians and public servants. Handover most of the services to private sector that is run efficiently.Private sector is our only hope.Privertize the judiciary,police,schools,hospitals,transport etc etc. Being a small island we could set an example to the world.

    Privatize the Judiciary? Justice for Sale in the open market??

    Eh, while we are at it, why not go the whole hog and PRIVATIZE Parenthood, the Children, the Defence Forces and the Government as well?

    After everything is SOLD, let the dispossesed citizens migrate abroad as servants to foreign countries! May Government by Foreigners, of Foreigners, for Foreigners long REIGN, Eh?

    BTW, you may be unknowiingly revealing Party Policy of the UNPatriotic Party! Watch Out, they may get you for leaking their future agenda before they are in the saddle again!
