When contacted, the CEB Engineers Association Chairman Saumya Kumara Waduge said his association had requested for suitable persons to be appointed to the Public Utilities Commission for the regulation of the Ceylon Electricity Board.
His association had requested that clean experienced persons without political or business agendas be appointed to the PUCSL for the regulation of the CEB as it is an institution that is of vital importance to the country.
He also noted that the CEB had reported losses of Rs. 4.5 billion last year. He also stated that the Strike action that was scheduled for April 20 had also been postponed to May 08 due to the Vesak festival.
However, the PUCSL Director General Damitha Kumarasinghe said that he had not been notified of such a move.
