"SLT believes that government sector employees are the lifeblood of the nation and that their tireless contribution is powering Sri Lanka’s march towards prosperity and progress," the telco said in a statement.
The government sector employees are the ‘abhimaana’; pride of the nation - and this high speed broadband package has been launched as a token of gratitude to their untiring efforts. The package is denoted by the ‘nil manel’ or blue lotus, the national flower of Sri Lanka. At the core of the flower is the blossoming new era of peace and prosperity that Sri Lanka is experiencing currently, while the government sector employees are like the petals, which protect and enable the flower to blossom and grow.
Nimal Welgama, Chairman of SLT Group, commented on this historic launch: "In keeping with the aim of the "Mahinda Chinthana" of bringing back glory to Sri Lanka as a centre which disseminates knowledge, SLT has devised this broadband package exclusively for government employees and pensioners. Sri Lanka can become a knowledge hub and the Abhimaana package is a giant step ahead for employees of the government sector to enhance IT literacy and to make 100% IT literacy a reality in the public sector. which employs thousands of employees across the country. SLT partners the growth of the nation and we are hopeful this package serves as a sincere mark of our respect to the valuable contribution made by public sector employees."
