General Secretary of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna Parliamentarian Sagara Kariyawasam says certain individuals opposing operations of the Yugadanavi power plant is hypocritical.
Speaking at a media briefing MP Kariyawasam said the government is engaged in efforts to transform the power plant to a natural gas power plant, which was not a possible feat during the past 10 years.
The MP said in order to attract investors, the energy sector is vital and therefore as a government steps must be taken promptly in this regard.
MP Kariyawasam added individuals opposing such development are opposing development of the country.
He reiterated that only shares of Yugadanavi have been vested with the American firm adding it has not been sold.
