SLTB buses not obtained under my name – Susil

SLTB buses not obtained under my name – Susil

UPFA General Secretary Susil Premajayantha says that it is unreasonable to direct accusations at only him regarding the payments to be made for SLTB buses used during the Presidential Election and balance sheets also concern the President, as he is the incumbent Chairman of the party.   

Sri Lanka’s Cabinet announced today that it has decided to file legal action against the UPFA General Secretary due to the failure to pay Rs 142.5 million owed to the Sri Lanka Transport Board (SLTB), for buses used by his party during the presidential election. 

However, Premajayantha emphasized that nowhere has it been stated that the buses were obtained under his name and pleaded that accusations not be made against him by highlighting the party. 

He therefore requested that legal action be taken against those who had obtained the buses and paid an advance. 

Premajayantha also questioned as to how the Cabinet is doing things which should be done by the Attorney General’s Department and the Police.
