Young professionals present proposals for National Policy to President

 The Confederation of Professionals for a National Policy, a group of professionals and youth involved in the ‘Aragalaya’ (struggle), presented a concise set of proposals outlining actions that should be taken to resolve the current political and economic situation to President Gotabaya Rajapaksa.

The proposal was handed over to the President at President’s House, Colombo, on Wednesday (01).

Discussions focused on short, medium and long-term measures that should be taken to address the current political, social and economic crisis and the adoption of a new ‘people-friendly’ Constitution.

After studying the proposal, it was agreed that the next discussion would be held in the next few days.

President Rajapaksa said that several groups representing experts in various fields were ready to build the country and that he is ready to provide the necessary powers and resources to implement the positive plans of those groups.

The professionals pointed out that a development programme with specific targets should be provided to all Ministries annually and steps should be taken to review the progress towards those targets on a quarterly basis. The proposal calls for the removal of Ministers and officials who fail to meet targets by the end of the year.

The discussion which was held under the patronage of Ven. Prof. Pathegama Gnanissara Thera and Shastrapathi Ven. Vitiyala Kavidhaja Thera was attended by Dr. Asoka Jayasena and Nelum Weragoda representing the Confederation of Professionals for a National Policy and a group of professionals and youth involved in the ‘Aragalaya’.

Justice Minister Dr. Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe and Chief of Staff to the President, Anura Dissanayake were also present.
