Lal Kanth

JVP politburo member and Chairman of the National Trade Union Centre K.D. Lal Kantha has urged that they want to protect the full ownership of the Eastern Jetty of the Colombo port by Sri Lanka Port Authority.

He made this observation addressing a media conference after discussion of the Port Trade Unions’ with President Gotabaya Rajapaksa. Lal Kantha said:

“We will continue the struggle to protect the full-ownership of the Eastern Jetty of the Colombo port. Though the President claimed that the Jetty would not be sold to India, the Sri Lanka Ports Authority (SLPA) will lose the full ownership of 100%, if 49% of its shares are given to India. It was confirmed at yesterday’s discussion that 49% of the Eastern Jetty's shares will be given to India, while the SLPA will retain 51%. That is what we oppose. What we want is the SLPA retain the full ownership of the Jetty. The Ports' TUs should never withdraw their struggle against the government’s move. We request them to stand firm to retain the 100% ownership of the Eastern Jetty under SLPA.

We, as a party will continue our struggle. We will never give that up. We appeal to all the progressive forces and TUs to stand against this move.”
