Accordingly, the dissolution of the entire board had been proposed, changing the composition, assigning authority and responsibility of the company to a new board of directors.

Additional Secretary to the ministry, Meril Gunathilaka has been appointed as the acting chairman of the company.

Maithri Gunaratne was the former chairman.
