Energy Minister attempts to sell oil tanks to India (VIDEO)

In the event that a case suggesting that the Oil Tank Farm in Trincomalee cannot be utilised by India without a lease agreement is on trial before the Supreme Court, Energy Minister Udaya Gammanpila and the Government are attempting to legitimise a situation which, by definition, is illegitimate, alleged Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) Central Committee Member for MP Dr. Nalinda Jayatissa, speaking to a press conference held today (01).

Accordingly, the former MP questioned the Energy Minister when did the government hand over the Trincomalee Oil Tank Farm to India. Had such an event been taken place, the relevant lease agreement must be disclosed, Dr. Jayatissa pointed out.

Supposing Gammanpila’s claim that the Oil Tank Farm is under the possession of the said Indian company to be true, he should be reading the Cabinet papers tabled by former Ministers of Energy Susil Premajayanth, Anura Priyadarshana Yapa and Chandima Weerakkody, the JVP Central Committee member added.
