Jun 19, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Construction, Engineering Services, Housing and Common Amenities Minister Wimal Weerawansa today (19) said that he hoped to allocate funds from the 2011 budget to solve the housing problems faced by many in the country.

Weerawansa made the statement during a visit to the Soysapura Housing Scheme in Moratuwa today.

However, he said that the absence of the Public Utilities Board under his purview has hampered the process of solving the housing problems in the country, and added that he would not bow to dictates of senior officials or politicians in carrying out his duties.

He said that while 362 structures have been identified as unauthorized constructions nearly 200 of them have been marked as directly inconveniencing the public, which he said would be removed.
