"Consider all verbal orders as circulars or face consequences"

Said Gotabaya Rajapaksa, President of Sri Lanka, on 25 September 2020 as reported by Sri Lanka's Daily Mirror Online (DMOL). 

President Gotabaya Rajapaksa has directed the officials to treat all of his verbal orders issued for the common good of the people as circulars to be implemented or face stern action if failed to do so.

According to the DMOL, the President made these directives at the "Discussion with Villagers" forum which commenced at Velanwita village in Haldummulla, Badulla. The DMOL quoted President as saying: “I expect public officials to consciously comprehend the problems of the people and provide solutions. I will always stand by the officials who make the right and unwavering decisions on behalf of the people. State institutions take a long time to address people's issues. If a written inquiry from one institution does not receive a reply from the other institution within 14 days, consider it as approved.” He warned that  “Those who neglect this will face stern action.”

Gotabaya Rajapaksa was elected as the 7th Executive President of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka following the Presidential Election held on 16th November 2019.
