CEB instructed to discontinue power-cuts

Power, Energy, and Business Development Minister Ravi Karunanayake said that the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) has been instructed to discontinue power-cuts due to the situation in the country.

He was speaking at an inspection tour of the Kukule Ganga Power Station. The minister said that Electricity Board officials had presented proposals to ensure uninterrupted power supply. He added that the proposals had already been presented to Cabinet.

“We have identified several issues regarding the country's power supply and we have proposed solutions for them as well. However, certain Cabinet ministers did not approve those proposals,” the minister said.

Minister Karunanayake pledged to find a firm solution for those issues at the next Cabinet meeting. He assured that the security provided to power plants and all connected sections had been further strengthened.
