Via  the notification the subjects under the purview of the ministers have been changed which are even unrelated to  the cabinet reshuffle .

One such main  change is the Sri Lanka (SL) Central bank and SL securities and Exchange Commission  which were transferred to  the ministry of national policy and economic affairs under the Prime minister being brought under the purview of the ministry of mass media and finance .Earlier on  these Institutions were under the Finance ministry .

In lieu of that , the Food Commissioner’s department and the SL Insurance Corporation and related companies have been brought under the minister of national policy of the P.M. However when making the change as regards the Insurance Corporation and companies , the Litro Gas company under that  has not been transferred to the P.M.’s national policy ministry , instead it has been kept back with the ministry of state entrepreneurship where it was. The new minister of state entrepreneurship and  up  country  development is Lakshman Kiriella. 

The youth affairs which was under the P.M. has been transferred to ministry of Sagala Ratnayake.  Owing to this , the national youth service council, national youth corps, the national council for Human resource development , which were under the P.M. have been brought under the ministry of Southern development  and youth affairs of Sagala Ratnayake.

Meanwhile the Kantalai sugar company had been brought under the ministry of traditional Industries of Daya Gamage who is always idling away his time by crawling behind Maithripala Sirisena,  in spite of the fact that ministry was not affected by the reshuffle.
