“This is why they are trying to give away the East Container Terminal to the Adani Group,” Chaminda Wijesiri, a Samagi Jana Balawegaya lawmaker noted.

He claimed that the government is trying to give away 49 percent of the terminal to the Adani group and the remainder to one of its affiliated companies

Sunil Handunnetti, a former parliamentarian said that the government’s pledge to reclaim national assets sold to foreign entities have had no effect.
