No postponing leadership training

E-mail Print
Postponing the leadership training program scheduled to commence on May 23 would be a waste of public finances, Higher Education Ministry Secretary Dr. Sunil Jayantha Nawaratne today told Daily Mirror Online. 

“We have already spent Rs. 90 million for the training program and we have vacated and reserved the training camps for the scheduled three weeks. If we postpone the program it would be a waste of public money and our efforts,” Dr. Nawaratne said adding that another sum of Rs. 90 million is due to be allocated for the program.

Commenting on the speculation of contempt of court that could result through not postponing the training program, Dr. Nawaratne said that they have been advised by the Attorney General to proceed with the scheduled programs since it would not result in a contempt of court. (Lakna Paranamanna)
