 Sabitha's building removed with new Minister Amaraweera coming in


Sabitha's building removed with new Minister Amaraweera coming in

Minister of Agriculture Mr. Mahinda Amaraweera who took up duties as the new Minister of Agriculture said today (3) that the most suitable location for the Agricultural Ministry is where the ministry was earlier and that he would strive to shift the ministry to that very same place.

The agreement period for the building situated at Parliament Road, Rajagiriya, Battaramulla which
incidentally belonged to the husband of film star Sabitha Perera expired today (3) and where the present Agricultural ministry is in operation, he stated this when the media posed asking whether he would be shifting to the new building.

This building had been taken on lease basis on behalf of the Agricultural ministry by spending a huge sum of money after the new regime came into power, lease payments were made for the building without any activities in the said ministry going into operation as such. Though much attention was taken over this building and several debates ensued in parliament, no action had been taken by the former minister Duminda Dissanayaka to abolish the relevant agreement. Ultimately activities of the new building of the ministry took effect after a long delay, 4 or 5 months before.

"I cannot say anything about the expiry of the period of agreement because I did not have sufficient time to look into those matters. In any case I do not want luxurious buildings. Not only me; even minister Duminda wanted something like that", minister Amaraweera quipped.
