The industrial zone in Hambantota can be shifted to another part of the country if there is opposition to it, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinge said today.

Responding to a question raised by the joint opposition group in Parliament, the Prime Minister said even the President had agreed to set up the zone in Polonnaruwa if it could not be established in Hambantota.

"Even ministers Lakshman Kiriella and S. B Dissanayake requested the zone be set up in Kandy or Nuwara Eliya," he said.

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinge said land in Hambantota will be acquired for the proposed industrial zone only on the recommendations of the committee appointed to look into it.

Responding to a question raised by joint opposition group leader Dinesh Gunawardane, the Premier said the committee was headed by Minister Sagala Ratnayake and MP Chamal Rajapaksa and Ministers Mahinda Amaraweera and Sajith Premadsa were also members of the committee.

All agreements on the zone project will be presented to the House for debate and that Parliament could discuss and debate Saturday's incident when the police released a report, he said. (Yohan Perera)

    Shift the Parliament to H'tota and this Industrial Zone comes to Kotte and we have a comfort life. Everybody benefits.

    There is a gigantic Natural harbour in trinco and a harbour in KKS

    No one seems to understand this "Hambantota Industrial Operation" is a brilliant plan to remove the power base of Rajapaksas permanently and it has little to do with economics.

    johan Monday, 09 January 2017 09:47 PM

    Why all projects are opened in Hambantota. Why otherprovinces are given step motherly treatment.Why they did not vote for you?????

    Chux Monday, 09 January 2017 01:17 PM

    Everything you all trying either president put on hold or you put those like Jr and late president Premadasa pls goahead with your planned work as Rajapaksha thuggery to be stopped when you have very strong government

    Shelly. Monday, 09 January 2017 01:28 PM

    Hamba. tota is not a NINDAGAMA of Rajapaksas. And the people there are not slaves of that family. Better they get freed themselves from the clutches. This is a period of FREEDOM.Hamba. Tota being an underdeveloped area Govt. is bound to develope it and make those people experience the NEW WORLD. Should not step back. via DM Android App

    All developments are focused on Hambantota while secong main city-Kandy is still waiting for a new development. Why cant anybody, anybody cant even come with atleast a traffic plan for those people? Knady is a gem and highest city after colombo where people travel most

    How foolish is this guy Kandy nor polonaruwa have noneasy access to the port A free zone needs to be establish closer and with easy access to ports.. that will define its successIt's simple supply chain management

    Lima Monday, 09 January 2017 03:27 PM

    LEAVE H'TOTA AND DEVELOP IN A DIFFERENT PLACE. DO NOT ANY SINGLE WORKER FROM H'TOTA . SCRUTINIZE PROPERLY AND TAKE THE WORKERS FROM OTHER PARTS BUT NOT FROM H'TOTA. LET THE EX-ROBBER REGIME KING GIVE THEM JOBS AT HIS HOUSE

    Sharon Monday, 09 January 2017 03:27 PM

    Take it to Polonnaruwa and put up a Harbor in Parakrama Samudraya...

    Wickremasinghe Monday, 09 January 2017 04:17 PM

    That's a good one

    Bala Monday, 09 January 2017 04:21 PM

    These are not heavy industries and you do not need a port or airport nearby for fnished goods. Roads can handle that to nearest port/airport. Availability of land labour and electricity more important

    Mandy Monday, 09 January 2017 04:22 PM

    Excellent idea.

    dAily Boru Monday, 09 January 2017 04:47 PM

    Better you shift Rajas to another part of the country. For example to north, the part they have liberated from LTTE and people living happly.

    Niran Monday, 09 January 2017 04:54 PM

    How about Trincomalee region?

    development in unity Monday, 09 January 2017 05:26 PM

    Welcome to north where a lot of capable men
