There was a news item about the role of Viyathmaga started under the patronage of the President Few members expected to get appointed to posts of heads of corporations after presidential Election. 

No one was appointed and the military top brass with the responsibility to uphold law and order were appointed to many places. 

At least members of Viyathmaga could have been appointed as deputy head or head of operations to help the military head to effectively and scientifically managed. 

Today we can see that some members were given nominations under protest from Old Guard politicians and the enthusiasm and the drive among Viyathmaga is somewhat fading away.

As mentioned earlier in An article, the newly formed  Sri Lankan collective of Viyath (intellectuals) can play a wider role by helping the politicians to take the right path. They can be the driving force behind the politicians to run the country. 

Every minister to have an Advisory Committee to scrutinize the actions initiated by the minister and advisor him to take the right path. 

In the field of industries such as Agriculture, Fisheries, Transport, and Tourism an experienced advisory board under the control of the president can be very useful.

This could have been the role of existing Viyath Maga

But it is sad that the members got nominations and now forgotten their roles and gunning after the Manapa. 

It may be called Vipath Maga after the election!
