WHERE DID THE RS. 31 BILLION FLOOD RELIEF MONEY GO, ASKS RAVI KARUNANAYAKE
February 05, 2011: The government is saying that they have spent Rs. 31 billion for the flood affected people while the people are claiming that they haven’t received even 5 cents or food, says the United National Party (UNP) parliamentarian Ravi Karunanayake.
ravi1Ravi K. expressed this view while addressing a public rally in the Mattakkuliya area yesterday (4) afternoon.
The monthly Bala-Mandala meeting of the Colombo North area and a meeting with the youth in the areas was held under the patronage of MP Karunanayake.
“Two weeks ago it rained so much the country was like a river. Then it stopped for one week. Once again a similar situation has arisen in the Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Ampara and Trincomalee areas. The government is saying it has spent 31 billion rupees on these people. We want to know where these funds are being kept. They are saying its coming from abroad. They are saying that 31 billion rupees have been spent?
”The innocent people affected by the floods are saying they haven’t received even five cents. They are saying they don’t get food. We would like to ask the government where they spent that 31 billion rupees,” said the UNP MP claiming that expenditure incurred by the Government in providing relief to the flood affected people, must be done in a transparent manner.
Subsequently the MP Karunanayake presented awards to the winners of the six-a-side cricket tournament organized in the Dockland area in Mattakkuliya.

Stop complaing the UPFA government. Think what UNP can do for the flood victims. It is very sad to say that the opposition party (UNP) is only good for criticizing the the UPFA government in Sri Lanka. Can you please list out what UNP has done so far to the flood affected people?.

You are asking where the MONEY went?? A Huge amount Paid to the Hospital in Houston as Medical Bill for President Mahinda Rajapakse during his last Visit to Texas.
Dear Ravi Karunanayaka, may be the money went to either Killinochchiya or Madawachchiya , or may be Ali Mankada or Pamankada just like our army went some time ago during the last phase of the war according to you and your stupid collegues?
When UNP was in power till 2004, RK supported LTTE with RW. He is also a traitor who should be found guilty and hung. All the money and assets he received from diaspora LTTE should be confiscated by the State and used for development of rural villages.
