Killinochchi in the dark

2013 Nov 05

The Killinochchi town has been without electricity for the past one month, officials and businessmen in the area said.

According to them the cause for the power-cut is an unpaid bill amounting to over Rs. 400,000.

The Ceylon Electricity Board has to be paid the money for the electricity which had reportedly been used to decorate the town.

Some 72 high powered bulbs had been used to illuminate the town but the huge bill which resulted from this has not been paid. (Colombo Gazette)
