Chairman of the Colombo Commercial Fertilizer LTD Thusitha Halloluwa today tendered his resignation letter to the Minister of Agriculture Duminda Dissanayake.

Mr. Halloluwa said he tendered the resignation because of undue pressure.

The Colombo Commercial Fertilizer LTD is an entity which comes under the purview of the Ministry of Agriculture.

He said that several illegal requests had been made to him to authorize a payment of Rs 1.5 million to the National Food Promotion Board

“The request was turned down by me and three directors of board members.  Even the minister himself made the request later on but I rejected the request as it was against the financial regulations,” he said.

Mr. Halloluwa said he had told the minister that the state sector depends on public funding, therefore an immense responsibility lies on the authorities to properly manage those money. (Thilanka  Kanakarathna)

    Looks like the "Sil Redi" has opened the eyes of all government servants. Good.

    I do not think it was Sil Redi! The man has acted as a man of principle. I believe we still have some of them around - well done Sir!

    This gentleman was one of the members of the team which was instrumental in toppling the previous government. This gives a red light to the government, that the civil society which came forward to send the previous government will not stay mute in the event, it breaches trust extended by the masses.
