Party leaders of 10 political factions affiliated to the government are scheduled to meet on Tuesday to discuss future action pertaining to the decision to vest a 40% stake of the Yugadanavi LNG power plant in Kerawalapitiya to an American company.
The party representatives include leader of the Democratic Left Front Minister Vasudeva Nanayakkara, leader of the National Freedom Front Ministerial Wimal Weerawansa, leader of the Pivithuru Hela Urumaya Minister Udaya Gammanpila, General Secretary of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party State Minister Dayasiri Jayasekera and leader of the Lanka Sama Samaja Party Parliamentarian Prof. Tissa Vitharana.
General Secretary of the Sri Lanka Communist Party Dr. G Weerasinghe, MP Asanka Navaratne, United People’s Party leader MP Tiran Alles, MP Gevindu Kumaratunga and Leader of the Our Power of People Party MP Athuraliye Rathana Thera are also scheduled to attend the talks.
Despite the group meeting with Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa to hold talks over the ownership of the Yugadanavi LNG power plant, a common consensus could not be reached.
Therefore, the group decided to hold another round of discussions upon the arrival of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa from the United States.
The party leaders have also planned to draft a letter to be presented to the President at Tuesday’s meeting.
