    This is absolutely correct. Who in the right mind would do this. These political fools keep selling Sri Lanka. It is the future generations that will bear the brunt. The oil tanks in Trinco too must be taken over by the govt and chase the Indians away.

    Can you do the same thing against China?

    Sri Lankan political leaders have always been intimidated by India that it is difficult for them to deny any Indian request. In this context the hiding given to the Indian Army by the Chinese forces is a welcome development

    This is the first time in many years that I have seen Sri Lankans coming out in big numbers protesting against India.

    Why did the Daily mirror removed this story from the front page immediately. People say you are being blackmailed by Indian spy agency.

    ECT was planned to be given to Japan India SL joint Company to get more business and efficiency. We must obtain the best value of our assets without being sentimental. World over ports are privatised for this matter. TUs dont understand business but bring down establishments.
