‘SJB against selling Eastern terminal’

The Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) is opposed to selling the Colombo Port’s Eastern container Terminal to India, MP J.C Alawathuwala yesterday said.

He was speaking to the media at his residence in Kurunegala, Millawa.

He said that the Government has promised to sell the Eastern Jetty to India and an agreement has already been signed between the two States.

Alawathuwala said the Government is trying to mislead the public. “However, they are always slinging mud at the Opposition,” he said.

The Government has been issuing gazette notifications and notices over the price of goods. The price of sugar, however, had not been reduced according to the Government’s Gazette, he said.

He said that nothing is done now except words without deeds.
