Janaka Rathnayake, Chairman of the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) has stated that the power cut which took place on the day before yesterday(03) was a sabotage operation and that action has already been taken against the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB).

“Arbitrary power cuts without our permission is against the Electricity Act and the Public Utilities Act. Accordingly, we will take all necessary legal action to ensure that this situation does not arise in the future. According to the data, the power consumption is very low on the night of the 3rd. We can see from that data that there was a good chance to go without a power cut that day. There is sabotage here. When we inquired about this from the CEB, even the General Manager was not aware that there was a power cut. From today, we will begin discussions with our lawyers to work through the law. We will decide on this before Monday and what will be done about it. ”

The Chairman of the Public Utilities Commission Janaka Ratnayake stated this in response to a media query yesterday (04).
