COLOMBO (News 1st); The Leader of the Tamil Progressive Alliance, MP Mano Ganeshan says that the Minister of Ports and Shipping, Rohitha Abeygunawardena has to take responsibility for allegations levelled against the Government of selling national resources.

The MP said this during a meeting with the Petroleum, Ports and Electricity Trade Unions of Sri Lanka, today (03).

Ranjan Jayalal, the Convener of the CEB United Trade Union Alliance said that it is a fight which belongs to all persons in the country, and not only a struggle that should be waged by port workers and CEB employees.

“We are asking Government to respect the public opinion of this country. The Government has no moral right to sell this great national resource to foreign countries after 6.9 million voted for them. We assure you that no matter what pressure is exerted, we will defeat the efforts of this Government.” he said.
