Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - NEWS - BY MUDITHA DAYANANDA

The sec­re­tary to the Min­istry of Par­lia­men­tary Af­fairs and Mass Me­dia, Ni­mal Bopage said yes­ter­day that he felt that he had only a few days more to re­main in his post. He said so at a func­tion at which the newly ap­pointed di­rec­tor gen­eral of the Ru­pavahini Cor­po­ra­tion as­sumed du­ties. Mr. Bopage said fur­ther that Ravi Jayawar­dene, in his ad­dress, had said that there were many black-coated gen­tle­men in this in­sti­tu­tion. “A so­lu­tion has now been found in this re­gard. The black-coated man is ready to leave in a few days,” he said.

He also said that he wel­comed the ap­point­ment of Thusira Malewwethanthri as the new di­rec­tor gen­eral, but felt sad that he would not be there to strengthen his arms, as he felt that his time was up.

“This is a sor­row­ful mo­ment for me, though I feel happy with this new ap­point­ment. In life there is only the com­ing and go­ing. This is a re­al­ity we must face,” he said.
