Dec 26, Colombo: The Minister of Power and Energy Mahinda Amaraweera has instructed the officials to launch a formal inquiry into the financial irregularities said to have taken place during the purchase of emergency electricity.

The Minister has told the officials that there have been allegations of massive financial irregularities in the recent power purchase and a formal investigation should be conducted to ascertain the truth.

The Minister has said that if any power company has acted fraudulently it will be blacklisted.
