Port City Bill is a disaster : Sajith Premadasa

The Colombo Port City Economic Commission Bill is a major disaster, opposition leader Sajith Premadasa has said.

“I hope that the government has a good sense to listen to the constructive proposals and arguments we have put forth,” Premadasa noted.

He insisted that the bill must be amended so that it protects the country’s sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence.

The opposition leader added that the Port City must be transformed into the world’s famous hub.

Meanwhile, Premadasa insisted that Sri Lanka must have a “smart” foreign policy that protects the country’s interests.

“We shouldn’t get involved in a power struggle,” he said.
