Subjects of PCs held unconstitutionally by Centre must be handed back: Jayampathy


UNP Parliamentarian Jayampathie Wickramaratne has stated that subjects of Provincial Councils that are held under the Central Government unconstitutionally must be returned.He made this observation during the Committee Stage debate on the Budget proposals for the financial year 2018, under financial heads of Provincial Councils and Local Government Ministry, Home Affairs Ministry and Public Administration and Management Ministry.

He went on that all central governments have kept several subjects that come under provincial councils since its initiation. It is the responsibility of the Provincial Councils and Local Government Ministry to work to gain them back to the Provincial Councils.

Provincial Councils have the power to run the Omni Bus Transport but the National Transport Commission Act has contradictory laws preventing Provincial Councils from operating them. All subjects that come under the Agrarian Services Act should also come under the Provincial Councils. The Ministry has to take those subjects from the Central Government on behalf of the Provincial Councils.
