Tue, Dec 6, 2022, 12:49 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 05, Colombo: The Minister of Transport and Highways Bandula Gunawardena has informed the Chairman of the Sri Lanka Transport Board (SLTB), Kingsley Ranawaka, to resign from that position immediately.

The Ministry of Transport and Highways announced that the decision has been taken due to non-compliance with the measures taken to facilitate the people and improve and make the transport service more efficient based on the government’s policy decisions.

The Ministry of Transport stated that the notification has been made by the Minister of Transport and Highways in accordance with the powers vested in him under the Sri Lanka Transport Board Act No. 27 of 2005.

The announcement further states that the Board of Directors' deliberate non-implementation of the decisions taken by the Cabinet of Ministers is the immediate cause for the decision and the non-contribution to take the institution towards the pro-people goals set by the government has also led to the said decision.
