SLFP will not support selling national assets – Minister Amaraweera

Minister Mahinda Amaraweera said that the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) will not support any Act to sell national assets to foreign countries. He said that the Government came to power pledging that such Acts will not be brought in as the Yahapalana Government did.

The Minister was addressing the media in Angunkloapelessa recently. He said that discussions will be held to resolve shortcomings in the Government and move forward to serve the masses.

The Minister said that the claims that if the Port City Project is implemented, that area will be a Chinese Colony is baseless. He said that the President and the Prime Minister will never betray the country and certain foreign forces are trying to obstruct the Government along with some local forces.

The Minister said that false propaganda campaigns are carried out to mislead the public but those will be defeated before long.
