Politicians in this country instigate people to carry on strikeS irrespective of the nature of the problem ,and without studying the proposal –may be…

From  the government- side there  should be many public forums explaining the circumstances under which Indians have been entrusted the peacekeeping functions in the North and how Rajeev Gandhi blackmailed Sri Lankans to sign in to the Indian Pease agreement .Then Indians shrewdly included Trinco tank farm in to the agreement as a strategic  move .That was the ulterior intention ,and JR had to givein ,JVP is also responsible for this because they were creating mayhem in the South and JR could not  co-op up with both fronts. After signing JVP went on rampage again and burnt many state properties including machinery of the SLLRDC ,SDC ,SEC etc ,by way of protesting the Indian army moving in.

Indian government trained tigers under Indira Gandhi because JR ) called Yankee Dickee) alienated towards Americans ,which India and Russia did not like .Then they pushed us into peace agreement ,but it was a calculated move by Indians ,as the conspiracy was hatched long time ago .India wanted to control Sri Lanka.

They operate like CIA who ruined Iraq,Afganistan ,Middle East including Syria ,all planned many years back.

Government is now pushed again by Indians to write the deed or the rights of 48 numbers tanks because ,India is weary about Chinese taking over Hambantota and Port City .

They think they  have a right to take action if their country is in danger hence they will keep pushing to take over Trinco tranks and have an influence in Trinco Harbour .

We have a solution .

Many Sri Lankans companies like Walkers ,Laugf ,Keels .Aitken Spence,Dimo ,State Engineering Corporation .Litro .CPC  to form a Joint venture with majority shares and invite Indian Oil ( which is also with CPC) .and also  give some shares to CPC workforce .Management can be entrusted to Indian technocrats with powers to Sri Lankan companies to sanction certain decisions

As an example Colombo Dockyard was leased out for 30-60 years with option to extend to Japanese and shares were retained both Bank of Ceylon ,ETF and the Workers too .Nobody complained that it was sold despite the fact that Japanese are here for good .

We give Chinese to develop Hambantota and Port City ,and Indians have the right to ask for Trinco ,But we have to be more tactical in giving it keeping the pulse of the people in mind .

Now SLPA is also having a cabinet  approval to work with and Indian Company to hand over the whole of Galle Harbour under Swiss Challenge .What will happen .Again the country will go into flames .

Like prince Dutu Gamunu ,we will have to sleep in a crouched position ,claiming that Chinese are in South and West and Indians in East and North!!!!!!!

Let us be united and get the people’s consensus to develop Trinco ,Galle etc with PPP where locals will have some shares and contribution .

Current politicians have been wrongly advised by their consultants, who also make deals with many companies abroad.

State should create a National Dialog  ( Jathika Kathikawa) and ponder into above idea on how proceed further .

It is a crime to let the tanks rot .

    Dr Sarath, Being a man who knows about boats and ships I thought you will see why and what India wants Trinco and Tanks.

    In the seventies India was getting nuke subs from USSR and wanted Trinco to keep them. Now India is building a massive Navy with diesel powered Naval craft all made in India. They need Trinco to tie them and Tanks to fuel them.

  2. Ananda-USA Says:

    Sarath touched on the PROPER SOLUTION to this problem: that is to give the port for use by an integrated consortium of Sri Lankan Companies to operate the port, use the port for their energy and ship building, and bunkering businesses while EXCLUDING India Completely from having any involvement in Trincomalee.

    Legal Jurisdiction, security and naval base operations should be kep in government hands.

    I SIMPLY CANNOT UNDERSTAND why we are giving ALL of these TERRIFIC OPPORTUNITIES to foreign nations and cutting our own Sri Lankan businesses out. Foreign powers should have no more than a 20% direct involvement, if at all. Sri Lanka MUST BE THE PRIMARY BENEFICIARY of these National Resources!

    IT SIMPLY MAKES NO SENSE AT ALL to give ALL OF THESE TERRIFIC BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES to foreign powers while forcing our own citizens to become their slaves chopping their wood and drawing their water!

    What an UTTERLY SLAVISH MENTALITY for a GOVERNMENT to adopt! Instead of governing the nation for the BENEFIT of ALL of its CITIZENS, this Yamapalanaya is busy CRASHING & SELLING all of our National Assets for the benefit of FOREIGNERS!

    THE IDIOCY OF IT ALL BOGGLES MY MIND!
