Though the Cabinet gave approval to provide 58 vehicles on lease to MPs to monitor development projects of the Government, the Parliamentary Reforms and Mass Media Ministry Secretary Nimal Bopage has reiterated his firm refusal to sign the document pertaining to the leasing of 58 vehicles to be given to MPs.

Responding to a question by journalists at a press conference in the ministry auditorium, the Secretary stated that he would not give his assent to the move unless all the issues concerning it were resolved.  He also pointed out the tender procedure in that regard was started by the Finance Ministry, even before the Cabinet approval.

He further stated that the current Parliament has only 45 months left where as the vehicles are to be taken for 60 months for a monthly lease of Rs 590,000. With the addition of VAT and NBT this amount will be Rs 700,000. If we are to settle the lease within 45 installments, it would be Rs 900,000. Even after paying this sum, the Government does not get the ownership of the vehicles.
