New post for fmr. Land Commissioner General

Former Land Commissioner General R.P. R. Rajapaksa has been appointed as the additional secretary of Land and Parliamentary affairs of the Defence ministry by President Maithripala Sirisena.

He has assumed duties today (03), reports say.

Earlier, MPs Kavinga Jayawardena and Chaminda Wijesiri had complained to the Prime minister that Mr. Rajapaksa was not fulfilling his duties properly in his post as Land Commissioner General.

Media reports subsequently reported that he had later resigned due the influence of minister Sagala Ratnayake, exerted over the advice of the Prime minister.
