Former Minister Vasudeva Nanayakkara sought a clarification on a story carried by Colombo Telegraph earlier last month concerning misappropriations that have occurred in the Ministry of National Languages and Social Integration.
He has pointed out the CoPA report covered the investigation period between 2005 – 2010 and pointed out that the portfolio was during the time, managed by S B Nawinne and not himself.
CT apologizes for the error. However, when inquired by the former Minister on what has been done to rectify the allegations stated in the CoPA report, he said that since assuming duties in the office as the Minister in 2010, he directed all pending audit inquiries to be answered promptly.
He sent us a detailed response written by then Secretary to the Ministry of National Languages and Social Integration, Malkanthi Wickramasinghe. However, it seems the responses to the concerns expressed by the CoPA have not been accepted. (read the report here)
Although the CoPA Secretary said the investigation period was between 2005 -2009, the report states that the findings and recommendations of the Committee on 48 government institutions are based on the audit paragraphs reported in the Auditor General’s reports during the period of 2005 – 2010.

Wimal Werawansa has infected his radicalism to even this man. Wimal weerawansa s politics should be banned in SL. Continue to say international conspiracy WW would allow her wife to abuse state assets. This was really a threat for the generations to come. Alone the terms he has been using should be subject to the close study of the sociologists. Today srilankan society has approached a social erosion. As some commentators report here – lankens in general have no comparable IQs to see it right makes difficult anyone to get the ground reality of the message that people really bear. Not many would agree with a corruption and abuse free country thought some are into that. How many of them would read articles posted onto CT or other forums – are not even 1% of the lankens I guess. Most of them in the country are busy with Ravaya and other tabloids that animate them. Currently, Ravaya has got back to their previous levles – may be shining a light to the aspirations of the many together with media freedom allows the nation today under the lead of MY3:

People in general are fed up of the politics being played by this penisless men – so that is the reason why they dont even trust to add their 2 cts worth to anything reported about these men.

You are a Dinasaur from the past. You betrayed the LSSP and set up your own party. You held on to the coat tails of MR so that you could get a free driver and a Montero. Your family may even had a few contracts in the state sector. You also betrayed the values you believed mainly social justice and Human rights by voting for the 18th amendmends. You are an opportunist and never be trusted. Your party is defuncked and you have no troops anymore. Your only way to cling on to power is to support MR and hope that the UPFA will survive. It is tine you pack up and retire from politics.
