The late Prime Minister D.S. Senanayake’s knack for appointing the most suitable people to his Cabinet is a lesson for today’s leaders, State Minister of Foreign Affairs, Wasantha Senanayake said yesterday.  

He said this at the opening of a model village named after D.S. Senanayake in Hambantota.   


The state minister, who is a great grandson of the late premier, said DS’ Cabinet of Ministers was the best ever in Sri Lanka.   


“He selected the most suitable people such as S.W.R.D. Bandaranaike and J.R. Jayewardene. The only equally sound Cabinet we saw was the one headed by Mr. Jayewardene,” the state minister said and added that DS’ policy of using locally generated funds for development projects was worthy of emulation.
