Power and energy minister Kanchana Wijesekara claims to have received information about a conspiracy to create an economic crisis before the local government polls next month.
He accused certain members in state commissions of being involved in this politically-motivated move through an intensifying of power-cuts and creating queues for fuel.
Some have now forgotten that more than seven hours of power-cuts were in force during the GCE advanced level examination last year, while people spent days on queues for essentials, he said.
Those matters have been managed by now, Wijesekara said.
Some are opposed to the process of restructuring of the CEB and the SPC to manage their expenditures, he added.
