Power and Energy Minister Gamini Lokuge confirmed the event that 40 per cent of the LNG Power Plant has been sold to a US Company, in what he justified to be nothing wrong.
The Minister made this observation speaking to the media in Colombo today (25).
“Please take and read our election manifesto. One of the main things there is that the government and the private sector work together for development activities in collaboration with international companies. This was said before the election. This was what the CPC did back then,” he said.
The Minister added despite the economic crisis, local resources will not be sold.
