Presidential, ministerial staff limited Featured

President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa has focused his attention on limiting the number of personal staff members of the President and ministerial staff as well as the official vehicle allocations, according to Presidential Secretariat sources.

It is said that as maintaining of such large staff numbers and vehicles results in costing the country a huge amount, the President has taken this decision with the aim of curtailing excessive expenditure.
