The Kandy Municipal Council had purchased ten three-wheelers for Rs. 2,628,500 and recruited ten drivers without calling for applications from Kandy residents or advertising the vacancies, the Kandy Times learns.
Attorney and Kandy Municipal Council member M.P.Jayasinghe has questioned the Mayor on the matter and requested him to table the related minutes in the Council.
The Mayor has replied that applications had not been called but that the recruited personnel were on a list and they were recruited after being interviewed by the Mechanical Engineer.
But questions have now been raised as to whether there was any transparency in these appointments and how a list came to be made.
