Kataragama Pradeshiya Sabha dissolved over corruption committed by SLPP
The Kataragama Pradeshiya Sabha has been dissolved as per the decision of the Governor of the Uva Province, following the findings of an investigation into corruption allegedly committed under the current regime.
The Kataragama Pradeshiya Sabha ruled by the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) was accused of committing serious corruption and a committee head by a retired judge was appointed to probe these allegations.
The allegations are substantiated with the findings detailed in the investigative report, proving that the Pradeshiya Sabha, in fact, is corrupt.
In addition, budget resolutions tabled by the Pradeshiya Sabha Chairman were defeated on two occasions.
In the backdrop, the Governor has decided to dissolve the Kataragama Pradeshiya Sabha and have it under the administration of a special commissioner.
