Deputy Minister of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Development, Sarath Kumara Gunaratne commented on local government representatives at an event in Negombo on Sunday.
“This is why our own voted against the budgets of local government institutions. A group that is in greed of money and power have been created. At some places certain chairmen use their powers while in some places some ministers attempt to buy the Pradeshiya Sabha members or even the mayor for money. Present politics is one where one pays off members and showcase their monetary power.”
