Former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe yesterday called for a dialogue between the Government and the opposition to come up with a fresh paper containing regulations to govern the Colombo Port City.

"Let's all of us get together and discuss for two or three months and see how we can come up with a good paper to administer Colombo Port City," Mr. Wickremesinghe said in his statement.

"During the last Government, I proposed setting up a financial centre, a modest one. This had nothing to do with the original plan for Colombo Port City. We decided to locate the Financial Centre within Port City. We decided to come up with a Bill in this regard".

“Why do you want to alienate the ministry of finance from the Port City commission Bill? No country in the world has come up with such a Bill. The Commission has to be under the Central Bank. If not one has to conclude that the purpose of the Bill is to allow financial laundering," he added. (Yohan Perera)

    Ranil Wickramasinghe and the rest of the country should step up and do something to save our country. Don't hide anyone at this moment , This is Sri Lankas turning point for worst.

    Rest of the stupid socialists? Politicians should play their stupid politics with things other than investments and private businesses.

    People must listen to you because we know how beautifully you handled the BOND issue.

    Leo Friday, 23 April 2021 08:03 AM

    He was working on a port city bill for 2 years without anything substantial. Now wants to waste another 3 months? When will our politicians understand that speed is what will help us beat other countries which are cruising ahead bc they don't have these stupid politics of opposing everything?

    The man who reduced the grand old party to 1 seat. Are you sure we can trust entrusting something like port city to you?

    Killing time is the favorite pastime of this man.

    You are now gone down to history and people have ignored any calls from you and your henchmen. You should have taught about this idea that you are talking about before signing the Hambantota port operations agreement. Your arrogance and your Royal College club boys robbed the taxpayers money. Now it's high time you and your henchmen go into retirement from Srilanka politics and give way to the younger generation.

    From our own experience from independence to date, we do not trust politicas to entrust our motherland's future.

    Dee Friday, 23 April 2021 08:48 AM

    Just let go of this port city man. We cannot handle it.

    Joshua Friday, 23 April 2021 09:00 AM

    If politicians are going to discuss this, you can expect garbage in garbage out.

    Cisco Friday, 23 April 2021 09:35 AM

    This bill was drafted under his government. Then why another bill? As usual counting days and postponing decisions.

    Anthony Friday, 23 April 2021 09:49 AM

    A shrill cry from the wilderness! Anyway Govt. may heed and bring him to the limelight.

    Kevin Friday, 23 April 2021 10:43 AM

    My simple and very short question is "who are you and what's your capacity to your request to be heard"?

    Tom jones Friday, 23 April 2021 04:42 PM

    Can you give us Volkswagen cars, chewing gum, gold chains. You are now history. Get lost. I will give you a rope to hang youself . Man who does not know the meaning of shame.

    R. Anthony Friday, 23 April 2021 05:17 PM

    Look who's Talking! Trying to strengthen somebody's Hands, i suppose.

    Buddhist Friday, 23 April 2021 06:02 PM

    Good suggestion. But when Ranil does not appoint a pinata seat member from UNP to the Parliament to keep supporting King's family, why he now wants to poke his nose?

    Ranil missed the Bus
