Controversy over Salu Sala letter to school principals

Salu Sala has sent letters to school principals asking them to place orders for uniform material.

The letter, signed by a co-ordinating officer, carries annexed thereto, a copy of a circular issued by the Education Ministry Secretary S. S. Hettiarachchi to Zonal Directors and Principals.

The Education Ministry Secretary initially recommended Salu Sala for the supply of material for school uniforms, but due to the resulting confusion, he decided against recommending any institution and withdrew his circular.

Following the receipt of the letter, the principals have started to make arrangements for purchasing uniform material from the supplier mentioned in the letter.

It has been revealed that the uniform material will be supplied by another institution owned by a private entrepreneur through Salu Sala.
