Dispute on revised electricity tariffs meets Parliament

The much argued revision on electricity tariffs made its way into Parliament today (20) in view of the problems it has spawned across the country, and the Opposition urged the government and the Power and Energy Minister in particular to focus on providing relief to religious places and families of low-income.

It was also revealed today that the electricity bill of the Parliament Complex exceeds over Rs. 06 million, during a Q&A between Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) MP Ajith Mannapperuma and Power and Energy Minister Kanchana Wijesekara.

Adding much decency to the regularly heated-up atmosphere in the Chambers, the subject Minister cordially acknowledged a proposal by the Opposition to establish a solar panel system to receive power as a move of slashing electricity cost in Parliament.

However, subject Minister Wijesekara also said that his Ministry cannot afford to allocate funds in this regard, adding that the technical support to receive solar power, on the other hand, can be provided.
