The Samagi Jana Balawegaya says the government is making plans to hand over all three major sectors of the country, electricity, fuel and ports, to foreign countries.
Parliamentarian Ashok Abeysinghe speaking at a media briefing today said the government that came into power claiming to be patriotic are currently engaged in the most treacherous acts.
MP Abeysinghe said the present administration claimed to make a change in the structure and to implement a ‘One Country One Law’ policy.
MP Abeysinghe said the statement by Minister of Energy Udaya Gammanpila that India has ownership of 100 oil tanks in Trincomalee is false.
The MP commenting on the recent visit by the Indian Foreign Secretary to Sri Lanka said India has rejected all such claims.
The Parliamentarian said the Energy Minister’s claim that India retains ownership through the Indo-Lanka agreement are completely false adding the agreement only states that both countries must jointly develop the tanks.
He charged the Minister of misleading the public and making false claims through his Parliamentary privileges.
