These members blamed in the filed case under number HCW12/ 2022 at Kurunegala high court that there are dozens of corruption and misbehavioral things in the pradeshiya sabha.

They described that they did inform by written and verbally several corruption including the sale of lands which is owned by the pradeshiya sabha. Before signing contracts he started 14 projects, and use his brother’s machinery while we had machines says these members who filed the case.
They pointed out that if the governor didn’t take action because of political influence, people can be lost their tax money.
