Construction, Engineering services, Housing and Common Amenities Minister Wimal Weerawnasa is using 30 vehicles released from the State Engineering Corporation, trade unions allege.
Minister Wimal Weerawansa was also not spared of allegations. One of them was that he used nearly 30 vehicles released from the SEC. Dudley Palansooriarachchi, General Secretary of the Corporations and General Workers Union, told media another issue was the allotment of 22 acres of land in Peliyagoda to a private concern. It adjoins the SEC's main construction workshop.
Yet another was about 40 SEC employees whom the trade union leader alleges are working unofficially as Sales Development Officials. They are receiving substantial salaries which are not recorded and are not part of the pay-sheet, he said.
