All Ceylon Agrarian Federation opposes privatisation during election period

June 23, Colombo (LNW): The All Ceylon Agrarian Federation addressing a briefing yesterday (22) asserted that no decisive actions regarding national assets should be taken during the lead-up to a Presidential Poll.

Namal Karunaratne, the Federation’s National Organiser, highlighted that in 25 days, the Election Commission will have the authority to announce the Presidential election date.

He expressed concerns over plans to privatise key national assets, specifically mentioning the sale of Milco and thirty-one farms under the National Livestock Development Board (NLDB).

There is information indicating a cabinet paper for this sale is expected to be resubmitted on June 26, Karunaratne revealed.

He emphasised that the government lacks a public mandate to privatise national assets and insisted that those involved should be held accountable to the people.
