COLOMBO (News1st): Groups that backed the government into power are opposing moves to handover a 49 percent stake of the Colombo Port’s East Container Terminal to India’s Adani Group.

“The Maha Sangha is against this. Maybe a few businessmen want to receive commissions from this deal, but please stop this,” Ven. Professor Medagoda Abayatissa Thero said Friday.

He pointed out that individuals who betrayed the country have occupied a black spot in Sri Lanka’s history.

“We are not ready to be a part of this version of history,” Ven. Abayatissa Thero noted.
