“Even COPE and Sports Ministry secretary was on the opinion of making board employees permanent” a top SLC official tried to explain, when Cricket Age inquired about the development.

The SLC says that the main criteria for making employees was qualification, past record and loyalty. The top brass saw these attributes in drivers, secretaries and peons.

Cricket Age had published on June 21 itself that secretary Mohan de Silva let admin committee had rejected the proposal of HR Manager Tanesh Dias recommending to make some board employees permanent. However, later powerful Sujeewa Godaliyadda triumphed, as SLC ended up making selective employees permanent.

“Head Of Department (HOD’s) recommendations were not attached with the proposal, so it was rejected during the meeting” an Insider at admin committee had told Cricket Age in June.
