He said a proper relationship had not been maintained between the Provincial Councils and the Central Government during the past. He is committed towards creating an honest, efficient and amicable relationship between these two institutions, to implement the National Education Policy with minimal anomalies.
The National Education Policy will be adopted in Parliament before the end of this year. The Minister expressed these views when he undertook a sudden inspection tour of the Wayamba Education Department in Kurunegala. He stressed that the role of the Education Ministry is to shape the future of the nation and not be involved in effecting transfers and admissions.
