A discussion was held yesterday to identify the problems and irregularities in the supply of coal for electricity generation and regularise the supply of coal in this regard.

Power and Energy Minister Kanchana Wijesekara said that steps will be taken to supply coal for the Puttalam Lakwijaya Coal Power Plant in an orderly manner.

Steps will be taken to restore the supplies, which lost due to the uncertainty situation in society regarding the procurement of coal. The political and unnecessary business influence has created this uncertainty among the people.

Officials of the Ceylon Coal Company and coal suppliers also participated in the discussion.

The lowest bidder selected to procure the coal through the tender process following the government procurement process informed that the supply cannot be made until the allegations levelled against them are resolved. Therefore, alternative methods of coal procurement were also discussed until the matters are settled
