Power and Energy Minister Kanchana Wijesekera told Parliament yesterday (20) that he will work to reduce the electricity bill by a greater amount than previously mentioned.

Proposals were taken from various parties regarding reduction of electricity bill. After considering all those proposals, the proposal prepared by the Electricity Board will be submitted to the Public Utilities Commission tomorrow or the next day. The minister added that the price can be revised accordingly.

The minister further said that the statement made by Ranjan Jayalal of Ceylon Electricity Public Employees’ Union in a press conference claiming that the electricity bill of parliament has not been paid is a false statement and the Parliament has paid the electricity bill as scheduled.

The Minister asked the Speaker to summon him to the Parliamentary Privileges Committee saying that through this false news, hatred has been created among the public towards the entire parliament and its members.
