CMC allots Rs. 1.6m to repair 30-yr old lorry! Featured

The Standing Committee on Finance of the Colombo Municipal Council (CMC) has decided to allot Rs. 1.6 million to repair a lorry that this over 30 years old, reports say.

The Colombo Urban Engineering Department has tabled this proposal to the Standing Committee of finance, which is to be tabled before the CMC meeting today (24).

The above amount has been alloted to refit a drivers' cab of the same design, to tinker rusted areas, repaint and fix a new number plate.

Allocation of such a staggering amount to repair a lorry which is over three decades old has raised eyebrows.
