Cabinet meets

The Cabinet of Ministers met this morning. Minister Akila Viraj Kariyawasam expressed views to the media after the meeting.
A significant decision taken at this meeting was the approval granted by the Ministers to recruit 3850 sports coaches. He said that the Education Ministry has already recruited these coaches after the conduct of interviews and the results announced. But the Provincial Councils did not grant approval for these recruitments. As such the Cabinet approved the recruitment of the coaches and post them to Provincial and other schools. He said that a pre Cabinet meeting was held at Temple Trees. It discussed about the Cabinet memoranda.
The Minister also expressed views on the future programme as a Government and Party.
The Minister said that as a party they advanced in the last few days. He recalled how their strength was displayed at the mammoth meeting held at the Galle Face Green. He said that they are ready to face any election in the future. UNP Branches were being established in every part of the country and Bala Mandalas being set up. He added that the disputes between their MPs had now been sorted out. Their party is a democratic party. The party leadership was able to safeguard its dignity with all these different opinions.
