United National Party Parliamentarian Ravi Karunanayake says that the electricity tariff should not be increased.
The Parliamentarian made this comment at an event held in Colombo.
‘We have received information that the electricity tariff will be increased on the 1st of April. I do not know whether the price of electricity will be increased by 50 percent. The Public Utilities Commission is asking the people for their views as well. Will the public say to increase the prices of electricity? In two weeks, the people are told to provide their views in two weeks. We are urging the authorities not to increase the tariffs but to reduce it.’
