Safer drinking water at a cost

15 March 2016 12:00 am - 1     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


A cab carrying 10 mega bottles of safe drinking water had been dispatched to Jaffna from Colombo.  This water was intended for a high authority operating from his Jaffna office, they say.


Employees have pointed out that it was a waste of public funds to transport drinking water from Colombo to Jaffna when the mega bottles of the same drinking water were available for purchase in Jaffna more-or-less at the same price.

However, the bigwig’s private secretary, incidentally his better half had replied that the water transported from Colombo was safer.
