The Udugampola Weekly fair belonging to the Minuwangoda Pradeshiya Sabha, which was scheduled to be declared open by the Chief Minister of Western Province Isura Devapriya, was declared open by the former Chief Minister Prasanna Ranathunga today.

The former Chief Minister stated that he too has a right to declare open the premises constructed under a concept envisioned by him.

Construction of the Udugampola Weekly fair commenced during the period of the former government and the Ministry of Economic Development and Minuwangoda Pradehsiya Sabha had allocated funds for the initiative.

Yesterday, former chief minister Prasanna Ranathunga engaged in an inspection tour at the weekly fair which was scheduled to be declared open by the Chief Minister of Western Province Isura Devapriya today.

It was observed that the commemorative plaque stated that the construction of the fair commenced as per a concept envisioned by Prasanna Ranathunga.

Our regional correspondent stated that the argument was about mentioning the name of the former chairman of the Minuwangoda Pradeshiya Sabha, Kumara Arangalla in the commemorative plaque.

However, the opening ceremony which was scheduled to be held today under the patronage of the chief minister of Western province, Isura Devapriya was cancelled.

Furthermore, the commemorative plaque too had been removed and a faction supporting Prasanna Ranathunga had erected a temporary commemorative plaque at the premises.
