The expenditure heads of the Ministries of Higher Education and Highways, Education and Sports were taken up for debate on Saturday.

JVP MP Dr. Nalinda Jayatissa opened the debate, stating that, rather than giving the order to the state institution that presented lower charges for the school uniforms, it had been given to a private institution for a much higher prices and this had caused a loss of Rs.68.4 million.

He went on to question:

Who is supposed to be held accountable over the distribution of school uniforms?

And added:

You can investigate and nab those responsible and, that education minister is in your cabinet of ministers.

Minister of Education, Akila Viraj Kariyawasam stated”

With regard to this drama on the school uniforms, they had legalised to give the task to local industries after presenting a cabinet paper. This amount that you speak of is based on the audit report and if you make the calculations again, the numbers will double.
