COLOMBO (News1st): Members of the Maha Sangha criticized the government over attempts that are allowing foreign entities to acquire the country’s resources.

“Just as the Sacred Tooth Relic protects the Dalada Maligawa, we must come forward to protect the East Container Terminal,” Ven Elle Gunawansa Thero said.

Civic groups and trade unions have heavily criticized the government’s efforts to handover a 49 percent stake of the Colombo Port’s East Container Terminal to India’s Adani Group.

“We believe that the President is a person who loves the country,” Ven. Prof. Medagoda Abhayatissa Thero. But since he was elected to power, various entities have been trying to manipulate him”.

Ven. Magalkande Sudantha Thero, the secretary of the Sinhala Ravaya Organization, said that the government that pledged to refrain from allowing the country’s resources to be sold to foreign entities before coming into power, is acting in a contrary manner.
