Western Province Governor Hemakumara Nanayakkara has issued an order to cancel the purchasing of a large number of expensive chairs for the Western Provincial Council (WPC).

Nanayakkara said that he had received a complaint from Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) Provincial Council Member Lakshman Nipuna Arachchi that the expensive chairs were to be purchased. The Governor said that when he had made inquiries, he found that there were some discrepancies.

He said the chairs were being purchased for existing members and for more members likely to be appointed later.

The Governor said that the money could be used for more important public uses and so, he had ordered to cancel the purchase. (Colombo Gazette)
