    The PRECIFAC and FCID should investigate the Sri Lanka agent who brought this deal and check his massive wealth also the minster of power and energy at the time should be investigated. This is a crime.

    Nothing will happend in future . This was built by Chinees and India. They make sure government depends on them to run the Power plant and this how their mentality is. Or one day of this company will buy the plant and sell electricity to us
