COLOMBO (News 1st); Sri Lanka’s President Gotabaya Rajapaksa emphasizes that solutions for the electricity crisis should be sought without hindering the people’s daily life.
In a backdrop where the island nation is facing an imminent power shortage, the Head of State spoke to the heads of the Power and Energy sectors at the Presidential Secretariat on Monday (10), said the President’s Media Division in a press release.
Officials pointed out that the root cause of the current crisis is the issues prevalent in generating electricity through coal and fossil fuel.
Sri Lanka’s coal reserves are sufficient as well as in good maintenance and if the fossil fuel power generating sector is managed well, the country can survive an impending power cut, said the officials.
The Subject Ministers noted that all measures have been taken to manage the daily life of the general public during the current situation of the country.
Ministers Gamini Lokuge, Udaya Gammanpila, Governor of the Central Bank Ajith Nivard Cabraal, State Minister Duminda Dissanayake, Secretary to the President P. B. Jayasundera, Secretary to the Ministry of Finance S. R. Attygalle, as well as Ministry Secretaries and heads of Departments attended the meeting.
