It was just a week ago that a major fire and a
chain of massive blasts rocked several areas around the Salawa Army
camp, at Kosgama, a residential area near Avissawella in the densely
populated Western Province.
Iíve been looking for clues and titbits in the daily newspapers
regards the conflagration at the Salawa Army depot, actually how it
started. Very judiciously, one newspaper on Tuesday, June 7 said
this: ĎKosgama Camp Fire (sic),
Parliamentarians vehicle fiasco:
Ministers whose names were linked to the new luxury vehicles fiasco,
came up with various excuses with regard to their names being mentioned
in the vehicle list submitted to Parliament last week. The paper presented in Parliament which sought approval to release
Treasury funding for Ministry projects including the purchase of new
luxury vehicles, was submitted by Media Minister Gayantha Karunatilleke
on behalf of Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake.
