Ten political parties affiliated to the Government have decided to take a strong position on the Eastern Container Terminal (ECT) of the Colombo Port after a discussion held with the representatives of the respective parties.

The discussion was held at the official residence of Minister Wimal Weerawansa today with the participation of the party leaders including Ministers Udaya Gammanpila, Vasudeva Nanayakkara and MP Ven. Athuraliye Rathana Thero.

They are of the view that the ECT of the Colombo Port should be in the 100% control of Sri Lanka Port Authority.

    The government should jettison these parties from its coalition. They are a bunch of opportunists.

    This time I am with you guys. Enough of selling to outsiders. We sold Hambantota and part of Trinco ports .. giving the most important port is not acceptable.

    Where were these parties when the govt sold the other assets of the country to the Chinese. Were they looked after well at that time. Hypocrites.

    Ah that Wimal is still alive.

    VERY well done Hon Wimal Weerawansa for taking this courageous National minded step. PLEASE support the patriotic Port workers and their Unions standing together to prevent Sri Lanka from becoming an Indian Colony or their additional state - which they are planning to do. Stop this ill conceived idea somehow. MM

    We are again going to see a acenario where these so-called patriots are going to stage a satyagraha cum fast unto death and when showing symptoms of being critically ill, some big hand offering water to bring it to a climax.
