At an event held in the Kandana area in Horana on Thursday January 05, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe commented on News 1st. The Prime Minister said that News1st quoted stating that “the company does not have any investments in the Western Automobile Company” – and that News 1st should have asked him regarding the matter, without taking it so far, as he would have said that there is nothing to that effect.

He went on to note that in 2015, Volkswagen said they were interested in  investing in Sri Lanka, but by the beginning of 2016 Volkswagen faced some issues internationally. As a result, the government decided not to resort to “Volkswagen investment.”

“What I am  saying is that just because you are angry with me, don’t get your mind twisted. That is exactly what Buddha said, The end result will cause harm to you,” he added.

Furthermore, he claimed that News 1st is trying to sabotage the job opportunities that they are trying to create for the youth.
