People want results, not Circulars – Prime Minister

Must read

Prime Minister Dinesh Gunawardena said that the people only want practical solutions rather than mere plans just described by Circulars.

The Prime Minister stated this at the first international conference on Global Challenges of Local Governance and Leadership organised by the Sri Lanka Institute of Local Government yesterday.

The Prime Minister said that people want results, not Circulars. People anticipate practical solutions more than opinions given through Circulars.

“People want immediate rewarding results, not complicated plans. Identifying people’s problems and providing solutions to them through participatory democracy is a primary responsibility of people’s representatives at the Local Government level,” the Prime Minister noted.

“Information Technology knowledge at Local Government level is essential nowadays. It is the desire of the Government to take Information Technology to the village level. In order to win the world, it is necessary to speed up the transfer of information technology to the village,” he added.

He pointed out that the time has come for Local Government representatives to act swiftly and sensibly in bringing information technology to the village.

“History bears witness to the existence of a rural governance structure even during the Anuradhapura period. The challenge of improving this to match today is left to Local Government representatives,” the Prime Minister said.

According to him, the primary objective of every programme implemented by the Government is to provide solutions to the pressing problems of the people.

Sri Lanka Institute of Local Government Chairman Suratissa Dissanayake, Provincial Governors and Heads of Local Government participated in the event.
