Governor Reginold Cooray has ordered the Chief Secretary, NP, to investigate the charges of corruption on the NPC Ministers and submit a comprehensive report. Media men raised questions relevant to the charges and the Governor answered them as above.
I have directed the Chief Secretary to investigate the charges against the NPC Minister and submit a real situation report. I cannot comment on the ministers for the present. I could take any decision only after the inquiry is completed, he said.
It notable that similar charges were made against two former Ministers who had resigned and even before a year could complete, charges have been leveled against the new Ministers.
