Involving an Indian company for the implementation of the East Container Terminal of the Colombo Harbour, is part of an Indian invasion, warned Venerable Professor Medagoda Abhayatissa Thero.
On Monday (25), representatives of the Port Joint Trade Union called on the Venerable Thero to hand over their report on protecting ECT.
It is evident a program is in play for a prolonged period to make Sri Lanka an Indian state, said the Venerable Thero adding a victory for Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi over ECT would be similar to Rama’s win over Ravana.
When this happens, Sri Lanka will become a failed state, he said adding Indian does not like to see Sri Lanka prosper.
If Sri Lanka loses the East Container Terminal, the government will never be able to raise its head again, warned the Venerable Thero.
Shyamal Sumanaratne, the General Secretary of the Progressive Trade Union on Commerce, Industry, and Services following the meeting with the Venerable Thero said if the government does not respond positively to the ECT issue, it would face strong opposition from the entire population.
ECT will be a turning point for Sri Lanka, he said adding the President and Prime Minister must give due consideration to the matter.
