Allocation of more funds for development in the budget is a positive trend; Arjuna

Minister Arjuna Ranatunge has said that the allocation of more funds for development through the budget is a positive trend. He expressed this view joining in a workshop in Colombo.
The workshop was held to sort out problems prevailing in the public transport sector. The workshop was jointly organized by the Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation Services, the Provincial Transport Authority and the National Transport Commission. Minister Arjuna Ranatunge and State Minister Ashok Abeysinghe joined in the occasion.
Further expressing his views Minister Arjuna Ranatunge said that the facilities they have are limited. This was the reason why the Finance Ministry took a decision to effect changes once a month. Agreement was reached to revise the bus fares last time. As such it is their responsibility to revise bus fares if oil prices increased. This is common to everyone. The increase in the toll for expressways was discussed in the Cabinet. As a country many funds were allocated for development. He said that they expected to make 2019 a Year of Development. Massive funds have been allocated for development. He said he is personally happy about it.
