SJB Secretary slams Govt over WCT
By Nirmani Guneratne
SJB General Secretary, MP Ranjith Maddumabandara, said the Government had engaged in a drama concerning the East Container Terminal (ECT) of the Colombo Port.
He asserted that the duplicitous conduct of the Government was seen with the latter having obtained Cabinet approval to lease the West Container Terminal (WCT) to Adani Group in India. He added that when they were in the UNP they strove to protect national resources at any cost, unlike the present regime, which is determined to either sell or lease nerve centres to foreign buyers for a pittance.
