Badulla MC operations suspended and placed under special commissioner

The Uva Province Governor A. J. M. Muzzamil has suspended the operations of the Badulla Municipal Council and it has been placed under a special commissioner.

He said the decision was taken as the council has become inactive as majority of councillors are not supporting the mayor.

The Governor has issued a gazette notification suspending the operations of the council and appointed a retired judge H. M. R. Anura Kumara to conduct an inquiry.
