The Ministry of Public Administration and Home Affairs has warned former ministers and Members of Parliament (MP) occupying state owned houses at Summit flats in Jawatta to vacate the premises within two weeks or face legal action.

Secretary to the Ministry of Public Administration, D. Dissanayaka, speaking to Daily Mirror online, said that eight former Members of Parliament including former Foreign Minister Rohitha Bogollagama, M. S. Sellasamy, Ranjith Alavihira and Amiri Ali have already been given time to vacate Summit flats.

He said that the former MPs had requested two weeks time to vacate the premises but had failed to do so and had subsequently requested two months time to leave.

The Ministry of Public Administration and Home Affairs says it has now given another two weeks time for the former ministers and Members of Parliament to leave the Summit flats or face legal action.

Meanwhile Ministers who have replaced the former ministers are being paid Rs. 50, 000 by the respective Ministries as a house rent until they get their official residence back. (Daily Mirror online)

    It seems everybody is having a gala time

    Monday, 31 May 2010 05:53 AM

    Typical sri lankan politics

    Monday, 31 May 2010 06:07 AM

    Why use legal action when you cud send a bulldozer in the same manner an ethnic minority was kicked out from Slave Island...

    Monday, 31 May 2010 06:47 AM

    Cut the water and electricity supply.They will automaticaly vacate.

    Monday, 31 May 2010 08:17 AM

    yes, you may accomodate them at alternate facilities near Orugodawatta, Maligawatta, Sedawatta, Thotalanga etc.

    Sunday, 30 May 2010 12:46 PM

    Sound good, If they dont vacate by then throw them out first then take legal action.

    Sunday, 30 May 2010 01:01 PM

    They can now move into their private Palaces and Mansions. It would be a very rare case to find one of those guys without a place to live in.

    Sunday, 30 May 2010 01:17 PM

    Why cant the private sector too evict the tenants the same way?
    One country one law

    Monday, 31 May 2010 08:43 AM

    The law makers themselves violate the rules. What can we expect from these fellows. This a complete lawless country and a complete failed state without any doubt.

    Sunday, 30 May 2010 01:56 PM

    this is our gratitude...& style treating... the PAST...

    Sunday, 30 May 2010 02:03 PM

    Heard that the new Minister of Public Administration himself is still occupying the official residence assigned for the Minister of Power and Energy, his earlier portfolio.
    While it is commendable that he is evicting the lost candidates from summit flats the minister should first set an example to others by moving out of the residence he is occpying now.

    Poor chaps. I suppose none of them have a house of their own!!!!!!!

    Sunday, 30 May 2010 02:12 PM

    No more rent act of 1971?

    Sunday, 30 May 2010 04:33 PM

    why face legal action, just kick them out like what happened in the other two incidents.

    Sunday, 30 May 2010 11:57 PM

    This is how our (tax payers) money is being wasted for nothing! Why not the same treatment similar to people illegally occupying pavement? I thinks this group deserve harsh treatment.

    Monday, 31 May 2010 01:42 AM

    Why should the respective Ministries pay Rs 50,000/= to these MPs till such time they move out? If a time frame has been give to move out, they should obediently go. In the alternative call the Police & Defense Services to put them out. Just like Govt did to General Sarath Fonseka. Lets be fair.

    Monday, 31 May 2010 01:57 AM

    Please charge the rent allowance paid to new MPs from the former MPs rejected by the people for delaying handing over.
    If this happens to a common man what would be the result. See the guys who are defaulting? ones who had defrauded peoples money and who were rejected by the people.
    See the small delegation that went with Hon G.L. to USA. and what former Boggles took all his kith and kin?

    Monday, 31 May 2010 03:34 AM

    Shameless.

    Monday, 31 May 2010 04:49 AM

    They have own houses rented out!
