Posted in Local News
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.’

Can he tell us first, where on the earth the public wellcomed a price increase?
Yes Ravi, the public will support the price increase to enable the Electricity Board to be run as a profitable venture.
That way, when the Electricity Board is sold, it will bring in a bigger price (and commissions of course!).
Hon Pavithra Devi Wanniarachi, the Minister for Enegy is the most progressive member of the rajapaksa cabinet. her leadership in eradicating corruption in the Judiciary which culminated in the impeachment of the former Chief Justice was admirable.
Hon Pavithra Devi is doing wonders for the Energy Industry and the voters of Sri Lanka including those in the North (who were blessed with a Power Station within weeks of the new Minister assuming office) are eagerly waiting to be consulted on measures to increase the viability of the power industry.
