An ambulance boat which was intended for service in the Island Sector had capsized at its anchorage in the rough seas that prevailed yesterday at Kurikadduwan. This boat was recently brought and handed over by the President to be engaged in ambulance service between the mainland and the out lying islands.
The area people say that the design of the boat is not appropriate to the seas of the Island Sector. It could not even stand up this weather. This is a colossal waste of valuable funds.
