By C.V. Wigneswaran –
Someone asked me: What have you to say regarding the Cabinet decision to not grant the Colombo Eastern Container Terminal to India?
My response was: What I have been warning earlier has come to pass. It is no secret that successive Sri Lankan Governments have cheated India many a time. This is another example. I expected this to happen after the Geneva sittings. I mentioned this in an interview with the media a few weeks ago. But it has happened slightly earlier.
There is news that the Sri Lankan Government wishes to lease out three of the Islands close to Jaffna to a Chinese Organization to start certain projects to generate Electricity. This is a serious matter.
