Finance Min. speaks about the allocation of funds to ministries


Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake says that he regrets ignorant statements that are being made by those who are oblivious to how the allocation of funds are actually made to ministries

The Finance Minister made the statement while responding to queries raised by journalists following a convocation held at the BMICH yesterday.

Minister of Plantation Industries Naveen Dissanayake had earlier said that he would not, in any way allow the ministry of finance to acquire funds earned by the tea industry through the CESS.

The Minister said that if such an acquisition was carried out, he would resign.

Minister Ravi Karunanayake said that he had absolutely no problem at all with Minister Naveen Dissanayake.
