Colombo Mayor A.J.M Muzzamil said today parliamentarian Ravi Karunanayake had used funds obtained from the Ministry of Economic Development to build the bus halt, which has been caught up in the centre of a storm.

He said bus halts within the city limits came under the purview of the Colombo Municipality and therefore could not be used for private purposes.

“The bus halt that was demolished had Mr. Karunanayake’s posters on it. He has used the bus halt for advertising purposes,” Mr. Muzzamil said.

He said he had taken measures to rectify the situation when he was told about it.

“I notified the relevant parties and told them to remove the bus halt if they wished to. When decided to demolish it because it was an illegal construction,

” Mr. Muzzamil said and added that the Municipality had decided on putting up 100 bus halts. (Chathushika Wijeyesinge)

    Vengeance and ego has no limit. Whether funds are from Ministry of Economic Affairs or CMC they are all public funds. When will our politicians stop behaving like toddlers. via DM iPad app

    Kick him out of the UNP. He is a bad example.

    Why is these people behaving like schoolboys when an election is round the corner? I hope at least Ravi can take the higher position and behave like a statesman by not replying to him. Don't rise to the bait of someone who seems bent on destroying the party because his wife was not selected. Such seemingly selfish people cannot be servants of the public and should be chased out.

    Ranil where are you. If you cannot control your men how can some one vote for UNP. I am a UNPer, ut thinking to vote for UPFA in this situation.
