MP Kavinda Jayawardena defrauded the Railways dept?
UNP Gampaha district MP - Kavinda Jayawardena has obtained a 11-carriage train for 1,000 passengers on Feb. 01 and 02 without making any prepayment, the All Ceylon Railway General Employees’ Union says.
The train had travelled from Ja-ela to Madhu area.
The union had made a formal request to minister of Transport - Nimal Siripala de Silva requesting to hold an inquiry on this regard.
The letter states that the MP had evaded payment, misusing his political might and violating the process that is usually followed when booking a special train.
