The Petitioner stated in his petition that the Cabinet of the Western Province Provincial Council had decided to hand over a crown land at Thalpitiya, Wadduwa to him for development purposes but the Panadura Divisional Coordinating Committee had suspended the decision of the Western Provincial Council. Therefore an inquiry may be held by the Court and issue a Writ of Mandamus against the Panadura Divisional Coordinating Committee cancelling the order made by the committee.
