Provincial Councils render commendable service … Somawanse Godagoda

Somawansa Kodagoda

Former Chairman of the Southern Provincial Council Somawansa Kodagoda has observed that the provincial councils had rendered commendable service to the people and that they dismissed the view that they be scraped.

He was addressing a press conference at the Southern Provincial Council Secretariat in Kalegana, Galle recently. About 15 ex-councillors were present.

Somawansa said:

“We denounce the recent statement by a minister that Provincial Councils are white elephants. It is neither true nor a notion of the Government. Since the establishment of Provincial Councils under the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, the PCs have rendered commendable national services in social and cultural development. The statement by a minister demanding the abolition of the Provincial Councils citing them as white elephants is not an opinion of the Government.”
