He emphasized that there have been no alterations to these policies and that there are no plans to modify them in the future.

He made these statements while participating in an appreciation ceremony held yesterday (24) afternoon at the headquarters of the Civil Service Department in Katubedda, Moratuwa, to acknowledge the efforts and contributions of the officers of the Civil Service Department.
