Principal - Devi Balika - of Colombo 08, SL- Formerly of Education Ministry and residing in Devi Balika staff quarters was called upon by the Lord (Public Services Commission) on 6th May 2009. Dearly beloved of one Jobless (but highly politically connected) husband and loving mother of two stupid young girls. More well hated principal of the Devi Balika Vidyalaya and much much much hated dictator of the students were firmly terminated from services with immediate effect from 6th May 2009 by the Public Services Commission on alleged money frauds and miss using powers vested on her. The kicking out ceremony had already taken place and may load have mercy on that poor stupid soul.
Right...moving on... why I did this and made a personal comment on this issue?
This is absolutely wonderful neck breaking super duper work from a public commission I had heard after a long time... damn long time.
It's ironic that we have to praise the work of government, where these should be done by default.. but with the politics getting into everything, such stern and rock solid decisions are hard to come by and witness. This principal and 4 others had been accused of mismanaging / swindling and accepting of bribes both monetary and financially over the past 1 year time.
Since this case had come up, incredible amounts of political pressure bolted out in from of the education minister even going upto the level of "DA BOMB = PRESIDENT".
But.. surprise.. surprise.. the officials of the Public Services Commission whom had conducted the investigation (1 year long) and minted out the decision to interdict all these 5 people's services... they had stuck to their decision and shot down any pressure or opposition for their final verdict.
Bravo Gentleman !
Super show ! .. that's the way you all have to be in the government service... couple a more of you and we can get back to the "Premadaasa" era of public administration and government service !
