Minister of Water Supplies and Urban
Design Rauf Hakeem had submitted a Cabinet Paper to the Cabinet Yesterday (23) by seeking an approval to increase the water bill by 65 percent amidst the protests of two Ministers. 

Accordingly Minister's Dr.Sarath Amunugama and Rishard Baduideen had strongly opposed the Cabinet Paper it has been revealed.

Minister Hakeem however pointed out that as a result of not increasing the Water bill since 2010, Water Board is functioning with losses and therefore the Water bill should be increased.

The Cabinet had handed over the matter to Cost of Living Committee to decide on whether the Water Bill should be increased or not .
