Decision to import limited number of vehicles suspended

A decision taken earlier to import a limited number of vehicles has been suspended.

The Cabinet decided to suspend the move when it met today, Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa’s office said.

The Cabinet had convened via Zoom today and was chaired by Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa, who is also the Minister of Finance.

The Finance Ministry had earlier decided to import a limited number of vehicles, including vehicles for Parliamentarians.

However, when the Cabinet convened today it was decided to suspend the move considering the situation in the country.

The coronavirus situation in Sri Lanka and the state of the economy were considered when the decision to import the vehicles was suspended. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. Good decision I support it. I also support the Port City Bill.

    ජනාධිපති ගෝතභය රාජපක්ෂගේ තීරණයට මම සහාය දෙමි. ඔවුන්ගේ දූෂිත ඉන්දියානු ලොකු සහෝදරයන් පසුපස යන දූෂිත දේශපාලන නායකයින් වරාය නගරය පාලනය කරනවාට අපි කැමති නැහැ. ශ්‍රී ලංකාව සංවර්ධනය කිරීම සඳහා අපට ආයෝජන අවශ්‍ය නම්, අප දූෂණයෙන් නිදහස් විය යුතු අතර ජාතිය, භාෂාව හෝ ආගම යන පක්ෂග්‍රාහී නොවී අපක්ෂපාතීව ක්‍රියා කළ යුතුය.

    ஜனாதிபதி கோதபய ராஜபக்ஷவின் முடிவை நான் ஆதரிக்கிறேன். ஊழல் நிறைந்த இந்திய பெரிய சகோதரர்களைப் பின்தொடரும் ஊழல் அரசியல் தலைவர்கள் துறைமுக நகரத்தை ஆளுவதை நாங்கள் விரும்பவில்லை. இலங்கையை அபிவிருத்தி செய்வதற்கு நாம் முதலீட்டை விரும்பினால், நாம் ஊழலிலிருந்து விடுபட்டு, இனம், மொழி, மதம் ஆகியவற்றைப் பொருட்படுத்தாமல் பாரபட்சமின்றி செயல்பட வேண்டும்.

    I support the decision of President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa. We do not want the corrupt political leaders who follow their corrupt Indian big brothers to rule the port city. If we want investment to develop Sri Lanka, we must be free from corruption and act impartially, regardless of race, language or religion.
