COLOMBO (News 1st): The leader of the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), Anura Kumara Dissanayake alleged the Government of planning to sell the country’s resources abroad without submitting a Cabinet paper about the relevant plan.

Dissanayake said that 40% of the Kerawalapitiya power plant, as well as the pipelines and gas storage terminals that bring gas to the power plant, have all been approved for sale to an American company.

” The Cabinet is now being convened through Zoom. And at this meeting, they have decided to sell ​​everything to an American company. The Secretary to the Ministry of Finance has been given the authority over the terms of the sale, the sale price, and the forthcoming agreement. I know some ministers, without giving any opinion on it, have stated in the agenda that they had passed the relevant paper. I would like to ask the members of the Cabinet, have you seen the cabinet paper for this? No. For the first time in Sri Lanka, decisions were taken on the basis of oral statements made by the Minister of Finance without even a proper Cabinet paper.,” he said.
