Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake reiterated that the funds allocated for Provincial Councils by the Budget 2017 have not been curtailed in any form.

He points out that there is no truth to the charges made by certain Provincial Council Chief Ministers that Budget 2017 has curtailed the amount of money allocated for Provincial Councils when compared to previous budgets.

He said that the pattern of Budget allocation to Provincial Councils has been changed this time by providing some funds directly to line ministries.
