The government will not shirk its responsibilities when it comes to solving the power crisis in the country, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said at a meeting at Temple Trees today.

“The power crisis today could have been avoided if Sri Lanka went ahead with the construction of three LNG plants as planned,” Premier Wickremesinghe had told the ministers who were present.

“Sri Lanka held discussions with India, China and Japan to construct three LNG power plants with their assistance between August 2015 and October 2018. The projects never got off the ground. Who is to be responsible for this?" he inquired from those present. (Yohan Perera)

    Who else should be responsible except the head of the ruling party...doesnt it come under his portfolio to ensure that all operations of the government works smoothly...the ironic thing is that the person who is incharge of it asks his mp's who should be responsible....? Amazing governance indeed....

    3 LNG power plants? You should have gone ahead with the already finalized sampur coal power plant. India did not want the project to go ahead.
