India and Sri Lanka make different versions on Mattala Airport; both conceal the actual scenario: Wimal Weerawansa charges

Wimal-Weerawansa-01

National Freedom Front (NFF) leader Wimal Weerawansa has stated that India and Sri Lanka have expressed different versions on the Mattala International Airport management issue.

He charged that both India and Sri Lanka seem to attempt to conceal the actual scenario on the Mattala Airport issue.

He made this observation addressing a press conference. He stated that the Indian Minister of State for Civil Aviation and Minister of Civil Aviation of Sri Lanka had expressed contrary statements on the Mattala International Airport (MRIA).

He said: "The subject minister of India had made a clear declaration in the Lok Sabha recently that Airports Authority of India had not had rounds of discussions with Sri Lanka on the lease of the Mattala Airport.

Although the subject Minister of India says so, our Minister of Civil Aviation Nimal Siripala de Silva says otherwise. He says discussions are continuing to take place with India on Mattala Airport. It is puzzling as to why the two subject ministers express contrary statements on same matter.

Both subject ministers were attempting to conceal the actual scenario on the Mattala Airport. According to Minister Nimal Siripala, the Indian Airport Authority and Sri Lanka are hoping to establish a Joint Venture Company to control the Mattala Airport, where 70% shares will be bought by India."
