The Prime Minister has siphoned off over Rs. 50 billion though a new cabinet paper put forward by him with respect to the Kandy- Colombo expressway project, former Minister Dilan Perera charged.
The observation was made at a press conference held in Colombo today (04).
The former Minister also alleged that the Prime Minister had put forward the new cabinet paper instead of an old cabinet paper submitted by the Ministry of Highways and Investment Promotion.
“Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe has violated election laws as he made a speech at the yesterday’s ceremony as well. With the new cabinet paper, only the estimated price has been changed but the contraction company and the bank has not been changed,” he said.
He also went into say that the Prime Minister should immediately make a clarification statement in this regard.
“Apparently, this is the latest scam of the present government after the controversial treasury bond fraud,” Perera said.
