Quarter Of Capital Expenditure To N-E

Nov 24, 2010 9:21:47 PM - thesundayleader.lk

The government has said that the North and East Provinces in the country have been allocated sufficient funds from the government’s capital expenditure.

Leader of the House, Minister Nimal Siripala de Silva has told parliament that the North and East has been allocated 25% of the government’s capit5al expenditure unlike the other provinces.

The Minister said that while such an amount has been allocated to the North and East, the two provinces had only 13% of the country’s population.

De Silva’s statement comes at a time when the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) has said the government’s 2011 budget has not addressed the needs of the Tamil community.
