    Do they ever make a statement at all when they are up to no good? These guys are in a mighty hurry to get super rich-probably to beat the 2012 deadline and fly to the moon!!!

    it"s good thing if done and a bad one for the employees. Mahinda is the king of privatisation. SLIC thing is only a gimmic. All the money is paid back to the harry. But the SLIC assets are still in his hold. VAAASUUUU where ARE you now ....... Speak to the public..

    Minister of Petroleum Industry, Susil Premajayantha refuted UNP claims that the government was attempting to sell the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) stating that the UNP government was responsible for selling one third of the company to the Indian Oil Company.

    If its going to be a public quoted company,its a good move. Keeping with the govt,what they are doing? Nothing. Only a heavy weight to the budget. Do it, without selling to foreigh buyer.

    What is most important is not that it would be privatised or not but whether it incurrs a monthely loss of Rs. 01 billion as reported by some media.
