The virtually bankrupt government of Maithreepala, Ranil and Chandrika trio’s new project negotiations include the establishment of  a 5 Star Hotel  and Luxury Apartments  of famous Dusit Tani (famous for what?) in Balapitiya.

Dusit Tani  Hotel Group is well known for providing Thai Full Body Massages for all ages of men and women.  To put it simply its target market  may include customers in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, known as LGBT

Dusit Tani is not ranked in the same category of Hilton, Mandarin, Sheraton etc. worldwide hotel network.   Their market orientation is a money spinner, therefore, eagerly look for opportunities to expand their activities worldwide.  Their revenue earning capacity is greater due to targeted niche market orientation as mainstream providers in the hotel industry prioritise customer friendly, low risk, prestigious clientele.  As the mainstream players are not in the fray, the Dusit Tani take leadership to capitalise the flourishing market.   Their capital investment  is generally low,  provide employment for the local folks with or without educational skills.  The poor girls and married women in Balapitiya region  and followers of LGBT in Sri Lanka  will earn extra dollars instantly.

If the proposed Casino Project of James Packer was labelled as anti-Buddhists and detrimental to the culture of Sri Lanka, the Dusit Tani will be far worse.  The Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe cancelled $450 million Casino project, saying “there was nothing in it for the country”.  If Packer’s  project did not have anything beneficial for the country, what is there for the country from Dusit Tani?

The current government of Sri Lanka has wasted two years, failed to continue the established revenue earning projects and failed to commission new project planning put in place by President Mahinda Rajapakse.  It is simply trying to gain headlines, such as Volkswagen Project,  to appease the masses.   In the process  the government is now encouraging investments not conducive for the country.

    Agree with Chistie.
    It is better than supporting Shangri-La owned by Indian Colonial Parasites.

    Both parties sell the country to CASINO and MASSAGE parlors.

    When UNP does it, bad for SLFPers.
    When SLFP does it, bad for UNPers.
