Maintenance of Galle Face Green taken over by SLPA again

Allegations of financial mismanagement

By Lal Gunasekera

The maintenance of the Galle Face Green (GFG), which was under the Waraya (Pvt) Limited, the trade union branch of the Nidhas Sevaka Sangamaya (NSS) of the SLFP, has been taken over once again by the Sri Lanka Ports Authority.

SLPA sources told The Island that there were allegations of financial mismanagement by the Waraya (Pvt) Limited and that was one of the main reasons why the SLPA had decided to take over the maintenance of GFG. They said a probe was underway.

GFG earlier managed by the Urban Development Authority (UDA) was handed over to the Welfare branch of the NSS.
