COLOMBO (News 1st); Ports and Shipping Minister Rohitha Abeygunawardena says that the Adani investment is the strongest investment in Sri Lanka, however not a single plot of the land will be sold to anyone.

Abeygunawardena alleged that those who accuse the Government of selling the land in the country are still living in the tribal era.

” Despite the current economic crisis in the country, the Sri Lanka Ports Authority will commence operations at the East Terminal in the near future at a cost of another US $ 600 million. By now the procurement process is over. To operate the West Terminal, India’s Adani Company will operate with John Keells of Sri Lanka and the Sri Lanka Ports Authority. This investment is the strongest investment in Sri Lanka. Its a 700 million dollar investment.,” he said.

He further added that those who are critical about this investment do not even know where the west terminal is located.
