Ministers of the previous government are yet to return some 300 vehicles used by them, Cabinet Spokesman and Minister Rajitha Senaratne said today.

He said though an ex-minister was officially entitled to use two vehicles, some of them were found having about 20 vehicles.

“President Maithripala Sirisena has asked Minister Karu Jayasuriya to submit a comprehensive report in this regard,” he said. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    WHY WAIT TILL THEY RETURN. GO AND GET THEM

    The present Govt. is allowing them to play out further as they have deals with them.

    Desmond Jeromme Friday, 06 March 2015 10:08 AM

    Yes all knows about this, but the ruling leaders are allowing it for some reason which benefits them.

    J Palitha Friday, 06 March 2015 10:09 AM

    We have a sloppy Government, all are sleeping !!!

    Vijith Pieterz Friday, 06 March 2015 10:10 AM

    Weak governance cannot do anything, as the opposition is very much powerful.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Thursday, 05 March 2015 05:02 PM

    File actions against those culprits and put them behind bars.

    Horri Jimonis Thursday, 05 March 2015 05:03 PM

    Why this Govt. is scared to take appropriate actions against such thugs (ex-ministers). Do they have any deal with them?

    Vijith Pieterz Thursday, 05 March 2015 05:37 PM

    Yes it is true that RW having deals with MR having a black coffee at Carlton.

    Bala Thursday, 05 March 2015 05:43 PM

    The Govt needs their co-operation for the 100 day program - otherwise no majority. But they must be voted/kicked out at the General Election by publishing their names later.

    What can you expect when the chairmen of the opposition party is the president? How can he survive after taking action against his own men?

    Cobra Friday, 06 March 2015 06:50 AM

    Most of them may be scrap by now having been sold to scrap hunters for a song!!!

    Nims Friday, 06 March 2015 07:12 AM

    Wow, Ministers in Sri Lanka are entitled to use two vehicles at the cost of tax payers even after they lose the position. Sr Lanka is a heaven on earth to our corrupt dirty politicians. When is this going to end up. Look like no one wants to stop this waste

    Malcolm William Thursday, 05 March 2015 03:06 PM

    Yahpalanay thama badaganawa.How difficult it is to collect the vehicles and punish those who do not comply?

    Upul Thursday, 05 March 2015 08:03 PM

    What an incapable govt. we have now...? Give them notice to return the vehicles within 7 days and if not, ask them to face the legal implications.

    Dee Thursday, 05 March 2015 03:27 PM

    Do you want public support? Can you assure the informants safety ?( mostly from govt. service)

    kumara Thursday, 05 March 2015 08:16 PM

    I suggest that no vehicle be given to any minister, professional etc etc . Give them loans to buy vehicles of their choice and recover the loan with nominal interest. Check how it is done in India, Thailand, etc.One of the main reasons for corruption are these "concessions" given to politicos, doctors, engineers etc. Treat them just as members of the public, who they are supposed to serve.

    Nihal Amarasekera Friday, 06 March 2015 07:54 AM

    Fact is, whatever said, all in the game. We public in the lurch as always.
