The Central Provincial Council had allocated Rs. 15 million for a seven-day tour in Russia by all 58 members of the council and seven officials, including the Chief Secretary of the Council T.M.K. Bandara Tennakoon , Council sources said.

The tour will be undertaken in two batches. The first batch would leave for Kremlin tomorrow, an official said.

The second batch, which would include the Chief Minister of the Council Sarath Ekanayake, is to leave the country on October 5.

A leading bank in Kandy had already transferred $ 51,655 for this tour.

The members and the officials will stay at a hotel in Katunayake, where the delegates would be hosted to a dinner before they left for Russia, the official said.

However, the members of the group have expressed their displeasure over the charging of $1,545 from each person for facilities. (J.A.L.Jayasinghe)

    I am sure the everlasting traffic congestion in and around Kandy and lake road will definitely be sorted out soon after this visit. They are going to investigate how this is done in Russia. Bon Voyage sirs!

    What a crime this is for charging $1545 from each member for the tour. It is highly unjustifiable! This must be reported to the PM or the President!

    Gajaba Monday, 26 September 2016 12:49 PM

    Absolutely. People will pay any amount for the CPC to go to Russia and never come back.

    There is no need of this Russian Tour they can use this money to be used for the development of the CPC
