Irrigation Minister Vijith Wijeyamuni Soysa says it is easy to work with the government.
The minister made this statement during the opening of the Bibila Project Office of the Water Resources Board, which comes under the Ministry of Irrigation.
“We were given contracts that would have cost my life, but I managed to stay safe. You are aware that I was given the Ministry of Wildlife. I was to blame when a elephant died and when a person is killed in an elephant attack. Funds were obtained from the World Bank for the construction of a electric fence. The funds were directed to the Ministry of Economic Development and I never got the funds. If elephants are being stolen in the coluntry, I was to blame. Top persons stole these elephants. They had concealed the elephant registration book before my arrival. I was the one who made the revelation the book was missing. It is still missing,” the minister said.
He concluded that today, it is possible to work in the ministry.
“There is no need for a bigger ministry than this. Such is the government today,” he said.
