Minister of Transport Nimal de Silva has charged that the Sri Lanka Transport Board employees had not been paid EPF monies during the tenure of his predecessor.
He was speaking on Budget 2016 dealt with allocations to the Ministry of Transport. At this stage the former Transport Minister Welgama interrupted. MP Welgama: “Do not talk like a baby who does not know anything.”
Minister de Silva: “You are the one who talks like a baby. You talk as if nothing wrong happened during your tenure in office. You could not pay the EPF and ETF contributions to the SLTB members. Now I am paying for your sins. We will somehow do what you could not do.”
