The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) today asked a question with regard to the spending of Rs.6 million to buy furniture and equipment for Agricultural Ministry office.

The question was asked in reference to an item included in the supplementary estimate presented to Parliament today.

JVP MP Bimal Ratnayake who raised this matter in the House said the government was duty bound to explain before seeking parliamentary approval to spend the stipulated amount of money.

    This is a disgusting government. Said something before the election and now, do the opposite of it, totally!

    Exposes ones up bring. A good office chair can cost around Rs 500,000 to Rs. 800,000. Yes, some still sleep on donkey beds and sit on benches.

    This is the Agricultural ministry office, not a five star hotel.

    JVP expects ministry offices to work seated on the ground I suppose.

    On one hand they are building offices for government institutions in Battaramulla, on the other hand they are renting offices from their friends. No wonder elections are been postponed left and right.

    What about the owner of the building?

    So many hundreds of millions have been spent as rent, furniture etc. but not occupied or used. Who is responsible for this waste of public funds? Who obtained Cabinet approval without a proper study of plans and time schedules. Take that person to task and recover this huge loss.
