Alahapperuma added that the Minister of Power and Energy will be making a statement in Parliament regarding the matter and that a conceptual agreement has been reached according to treasury sources.

Meanwhile, leaders of the minor parties of the government held a special discussion at the residene of former President and Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) Leader Maithripala Sirisena yesterday (21) regarding the compact made to hand over 40 per cent of the Yugadanavi Power Plant to a US Company.
