Mano to question Mangala over fuel formula
National Integration, Reconciliation and Official Languages Minister Mano Ganesan yesterday said he would question Finance Minster Mangala Samaraweera over the fuel formula during the next cabinet meeting next Tuesday.
He expressed these views when journalists asked about the mystery surrounding the price formula after an event held in the Hector Kobbekaduwa Agrarian Research and Training Institute yesterday.
“People have the right to know about this price formula which has burdened them in numerous occasions. Hence, I thought of questioning Minster Samaraweera about the price formula on behalf of the people,” the Minister said
Meanwhile, he said they as the Tamil Progressive Alliance (TPA) would not support an interim Government proposed by the Joint Opposition and the SLFP members.
“There is a rumour spreading that I have taken the initiative to form a Government in which the President would be Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister would be Mahinda Rajapaksa. I totally reject such claims. I have not taken an initiative to do so,” the Minister said.
