The joint opposition today alleged that Megapolis and Western Development Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka was directly involved in the awarding of the tender to supply coal for the Lakvijaya Coal Power Plant (LCPP) when he was Power and Renewable Energy Minister.

Opposition MP Vasudeva Nanayakkara said a parliamentary select committee should be appointed to look into the coal tender controversy and take action against those who were responsible.

“The arrangements to award the tender had been made by Minister Ranawaka. But, after the ministries were changed, Ranjitha Siyambalapitiya was draged into the case because he signed and finalized the deal,” he said. (Piyumi Fonseka)

    He now takes a long time to see and hear. Put him to a home for elders on Government account.

    Why did not raise your concern when this was awarded? You were in the cabinet at the time. Sure this must be fully investigated and ALL those involved must be punished: if the list includes people you are worshipping, don't say harassment..

    Has this man forgotten that in the not so distant past jobs were awarded without even calling for tenders.

    Vasu still you act like a rotten dried pump kin. Enough...enough your baila, no one to listen to it.

    This man should have been sent on retirement from politics long ago. Now for his age, jabbering too much is not good for his health.
