Sri Lankan a burden to the country - Mangala

The government has taken a decision to restructure Sri Lankan Airlines in three months and it is not prepared to take on the burden of this airline under any circumstance, said Finance and Media Minister Mangala Samaraweera.

He made this statement at a media briefing held at the Parliamentary complex yesterday.

The Finance and Media Ministry Consultant Mano Thiththawela meanwhile, said a committee would be appointed within the next three months to seek recommendations for the restructuring of Sri Lankan Airlines and based on the recommendations of this committee, a Cabinet decision would be taken.

Thiththawela further stated that these institutions are maintained by public funds and it was no longer possible to continue taking on this burden.
