Every roof can be turned into a power plant in the event that Sri lanka is a country receiving sunlight 12 hours a day, but a ‘clan’ of engineers does not allow it, said State Minister of Warehouse Facilities, Container Yards, Port Supply Facilities and Boats and Shipping Industry Development speaking to media yesterday (23).
The current power crisis exists in the country under this circumstance, Samaraweera noted.
“This is a country receiving sunlight 12 hours a day. Every roof can be turned into a power plant. This has been ceased by a ‘clan’ of engineers. Instead of looking for an answer, they have proceeded with a project that depends on fuel-based power generation and wastes money, and are saying that there is no money to import fuel,” he said.
The State Minister added: “We say, that this matter should be solved in the Cabinet, gentlemen. These shall not be disclosed to the people. People have enough problems to deal with. The man who had his three meals can afford to only two, the one with two only one, and the one with one suffers from hunger. Do they have to see these ministers’ drama on TV?”
