The moves of the present rulers show that they are even prepared to sell their parents to get dollars says the President of the National trade Union Center (NTUC) and Member of the Political Bureau of the JVP K.D. Lal Kantha.
Speaking at a media conference held in Colombo today (2nd) participated by leaders of trade unions representing several sectors Mr. Lal Kantha said, “In the past the Portuguese, the Dutch and the British grabbed our ports with guns. However, under the present Ranil – Maithri government it has come to a stage anyone can grab our ports with dollars.
He said deploying police to tear gas and water cannon the masses who oppose the sordid acts of the government would not be fruitful and added a massive struggle would be launched to oppose government’s selling spree.
