Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera is reported to have objected to a Cabinet memorandum by Home Affairs, Local Government and Provincial Councils Minister Vajira Abeywardane to grant permits for members of the currently defunct provincial councils to import vehicles valued at US$35,000 each sans duty.

Meanwhile, the Cabinet paper was deferred for later. (Kelum Bandara)

    Just madness and nonsense. Give instead every voter a duty free vehicle as they are those who elect these bastards

    Yes I agree why should import oversized vehicle by these so called MEMBERS. All the vehicle should be duty free on normal duty with limitation to cc capacity.

    These are rats in a sinking ship, who want to plunder the last cent in the Treasury. What is the guarantee they will come back to power? What is the guarantee thee will be a local election?

    Duty free concession should be given only to those who contribute for GDP growth considerably..Others should not be given

    Well done Mangala. These donkeys do not need any vehicle, since they did nothing to the public during their tenure.
