Misdirected funds, misjudged needsView(s):
Story and pix by M A Pushpa Kumara
State authorities in Sri Lanka love to spend huge sums of money on various projects without even so much as a basic feasibility study. Many of these projects are supposed to help the public in their day-to-day lives and are often declared open with much fanfare once completed. Yet they often end up being white elephants that waste precious taxpayer funds.
One of the main reasons for much of this waste is the lack of proper maintenance. This means that many of these projects, sometimes opened with grand opening ceremonies that waste even more taxpayer funds, fall quickly into disrepair.
The Sunday Times captured some of the many instances where taxpayer funds have ended up being wasted.
