Power and Energy Minister Ravi Karunanayake said yesterday that electricity consumers would be provided with relief after the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) becomes a profitable venture.

He said this during a discussion with representatives of 58 CEB trade unions held at the ministry yesterday morning.

The minister assured them that he would resolve many problems that had cropped up within the CEB shortly and requested the trade unions to cooperate by leaving their personnel objectives behind.

Power and Energy State Minister Champika Premadasa, Ministry Secretary Dr. B.M.S. Batagoda and several other officials took part in the discussion.

    A crime to make State owned CEB profitable charging more from the public. Minister if he is good he may make. CEB efficient and lower tariffs .

    "He will provide relief once ceb becomes a profitable venture"Is there any ministry or government venture that became profitable under ravi? All have been robbed and made bankrupt. I hope CEB has enough to rob. This ravi deals in only billions. One of the most corrupt politicians.
