The cabinet meeting held yesterday became very tense owing to a clash that erupted between the Minister of Highways and Higher Education Lakshman Kiriella and the Minister of Sports Dayasiri Jayasekera. Sources revealed that an argument arose between these two ministers on the construction of the section from Pothuhera to Kandy of the Central Expressway led to this tense situation.

Minister Jayasekera had pointed out to the Minister Kiriella to refrain from obtaining a loan at a very high interest for the construction of this section and instead act according to the priorities identified. In reply Minister Kiriella had said that whatever others may say the construction of the central expressway was very necessary and the work would go on.

Minister Kiriella had then challenged Minister Jayasekera to leave the government without leveling charges. As the situation worsened President Maithripala Sirisena who was chairing the meeting settled the dispute. (Ajantha Kumara Agalakada)

    THIS IS CALLED THE "WRONG GAMES PLAYED ON THE HIGHWAYS"

    ACHILLES HEEL Wednesday, 11 October 2017 08:36 AM

    " without leveling charges." Yes - lot of levelling needs be done for road construction - Jokes apart - The central highway has become the Achilles Heel for Kiri ella

    Disputes and settlements is a good sign of yahapalana but in previous regime no disputes in parliament as they had an underground parliament to iron out if any. via DM Android App

    perfect example of "stone age and uncivilized " generation

    Kiriela has to explain why he is taking loans at higher interest and also declare all assets held by him, his daughters, wife and son!This should be the case for all government employees - transparency if vital to move forward!

    Dayasiri mallee, Kiriella mamma is also a black belt you should know that.

    Kadupol Jothywansa Wednesday, 11 October 2017 01:44 PM

    Is Kiriella's black belt similar to Bakery Banda's Black Belt?

    Mr. Sports Minister, you got hard slaps from Uva King earlier, be careful Kiri is also not a easy man.

    Rodney Weerasekera Wednesday, 11 October 2017 09:23 AM

    Does Hon. Minister Kiriella is subjected for PILES. Better he should go for treatment now, before its too late.

    Dr. A.C.B. Jayaweera Wednesday, 11 October 2017 01:42 PM

    After holding two vital ministries (Higher education and Roads) he had got B/P and Sugar and also subjected for Piles.

    Laxman Kiriella should not follow the same theory what Mahinda followed, means earning billions from constructional projects.

    Prof. Derrick Wickramasinghe Wednesday, 11 October 2017 09:31 AM

    Hay Dayasiri, don't show off like a fighter, we know about you, honestly you are good for muffet shows.

    Don Sirisena Wednesday, 11 October 2017 01:48 PM

    Kiri Mama, Daya Aiya is Mahinda's man, even now, be careful,

    Politicians "Come and Go" They are not clean. What's to be done! At any cost We in Kandy, have been deprived of Highways. Hence, we need the central highway at any cost. This should have been the first but former government never developed Kandy and that is why they lost badly. Who ever who doesn't perform for kandy will be rejected.

    Now you know why there are so many accidents along the highways and other roads, and why the country's athletes, including cricketers, cannot win games.
