According to Island they are getting
'The UNP has offered several key ministries to the SLFP following several rounds of talks to break the deadlock over sharing of portfolios. Well informed sources said that the SLFP had received Higher Education, Samurdhi, Agriculture, Irrigation, Highways and Petroleum portfolios.'
Our past experience with UPFA holding some of the above posts,
Higher Education - Minister in charge looted the a house donated for a University Hostel by a philanthropist in Colombo 7 and transferred the house in his name.
Samurdhi - Poverty rate increased and billions of Samurdhi funds siphoned for private expenditure and election campaign of rulers. A former CJ was removed for a judgement given to prevent the looting.
Agriculture - Money allocated for fertilizer looted and low quality fertilizer imported.
Highways - Massive road and infrastructure development at more than three times the cost putting the country in debt and earning billions in commission.
Petroleum - low grade petroleum imported and distributed with vehicles stalling and breaking down on the roads. Repair cost doled out with tax payers money and ministers buying property all over the world.
Are we looking at a similar outcome with this National Government ?
