Champika to resign? Featured

Patali Champika Ranawaka claims his ministry of megapolis and western development is not given the allocations as promised, ‘Sathhanda’ reports.

He is to raise this matter with government leaders, sources close to him say, adding that if a solution is not forthcoming, he will resign from his position.

So far, they have not made any response although Ranawaka had leveled criticisms over this on several occasions at the cabinet meeting.

Also, he is very disappointed over the non-availability of funding for a waste disposal project for Colombo and not getting approval for improving water supply to the city.

If the two key government leaders do not give him a favourable response, he will function independently in parliament, according to the sources.

Ranawaka and many other ministers are of the view that there is public opinion that the government is inefficient, as the development projects planned have not been implemented properly.
