Minister S.B. Dissanayake says that if the country is to progress, luxury hotels with casino facilities will be required to a certain extent.
He expressed these views at a meeting held at the Kandy District Secretariat on Friday.
“In order to develop this as a trading hub, we believe that ultra-luxury hotels with casino facilities will be required to a certain extent in this country. All these casino owners started off with jackpots. Who brought the jackpot system here? It was J.R., Premadasa and Ranil Wickremesinghe, not us. It was the United National Party that brought all this thievery, corruption and vice to the country. We are allowing the foreigners to play at these casinos and are saving our children from it by restricting it to the seafarers who come here. We are doing this to save the country.”
