[Updated :: 2011-07-07 17:20:10 Hours]

“We must always remember that government servants are paid with public money. So we are bound to give the maximum service to people. As you are going to be administrative officials of the country, you must be mindful of your responsibilities towards people. I would like to remind you of advice given by His Excellency the President to public servants in the recent past. His Excellency highlighted three points to ponder. They are punctuality, commitment and reducing power distance,” said Commander Security Forces Headquarters – Jaffna (SF-J) Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe addressing the latest batch of Sri Lanka Administrative Service (SLAS) Cadets who commenced their District Training as a supplement to the whole training programme.

Maj. Gen. Hathurusinghe attending the preliminary session of the workshop on Monday (04) at invitation of the Government Agent Jaffna Mrs. Emelda Sukumar further said that to make the administrative machinery becomes efficient and effective, a change of attitude is a must. SF-J Commander also dwelled upon that such training will enhance their knowledge, skills and attitude to discharge a better service to the country and its citizens. He reminded them of some eminent administrative officials who rendered a yeoman service to the country and urged the new batch of 145 SLAS Cadets to follow them as examples.

It is customary for SLAS Cadets to obtain their District Training at various District Secretariats around the island. However, as a result of dialogue of Mrs. Emelda Sukumar with the Civil Administrative authorities in Colombo, all members of this batch got opportunity to be part of the training in Jaffna district for the first time.

It is expected that opportunity of serving Jaffna will enhance the Cadets’ knowledge on Tamil language, Hindu culture and lifestyle in Jaffna. The period they are assigned to be in Jaffna is significant because Jaffna will have its local government election on 23rd instant and they will be able to experience what responsibilities an administrative officer has to bear during an election period.

Governor Northern Province Major General (Retd) G.A. Chandrasiri and a few senior administrative officials from Colombo and Jaffna addressed the gathering.
