The All Ceylon Farmers’ Federation has called on authorities to immediately revoke the decision to increase electricity tariffs.
Speaking to media in Colombo, National Organiser of the Federation Namal Karunaratne said a major mafia is underway within the Ceylon Electricity Board.
Karunaratne said the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation has thugs operating within the entity that has managed to siphon money.
He said the CPC is overcrowded with employees, who are paid salaries for a comparatively less workload.
Karunaratne added the Public Utilities Commission does not stand with the people, as they have burdened the public through the electricity tariff increase.
