The almanac that is usually made in April was made in December this time. Billions of rupees, the money of the Samurdhi recipients was spent to distend certain political characters through the media unit of the Samurdhi. I have discovered all the anomalies in the Ministry of Housing and Samurdhi. I wish to state that all the finances, belonging to both ministries that was thieved will be given back to the public of the country.
