    This is not profitable, therefore no one to take. Otherwise everything will be sold. If profitable, Yes? :)
    Sri Lankan people are waste, idiots, fools. Is there any otherwords.

    If privatized the GoSL cannot employ all their stooges and lackeys. Also if CPC starts making money the Govt will look like the jokers they are because they could never run it profitably

    Why privatize ? It is already being run as the private property of a bunch of crooks.
