United National Freedom Front Colombo Municipal Council (CMC) member Charitha Gunarathne has paid the cost of the food he consumed at the inaugural session of the CMC, saying it was a waste of public money.   
He told daily mirror that he paid back Rs. 3,195/- to the CMC Commissioner, which had been the cost of the three meals consumed by him at the inaugural session, after realizing that a huge amount of money had been spent for food provided at this event. 


“I do not approve of such huge sums of money being wasted. I also had food that day but I regretted it when I learnt about the cost of the food. It had cost Rs.1980/- for lunch and Rs.600/- for dinner,” he said.
