Joint Opposition to protest against Indian plans for Trinco oil tanks

Sri Lanka's Joint Opposition are planning to stage a protest on Monday demonstrating against the government's plan to hand over the re-development of the oil tank facilities in Trincomalee to India. 

The Joint Opposition parliamentarian, Dullas Alahapperuma, was quoted by the Daily Mirror as saying that "they would gather all the anti-government forces to compel the Government to revise its decision to sell country’s assets."

“We invite everyone who suffered under Unity Government’s actions to come forward and support to stop its moves, which would harm the country,” he reportedly added. 

"The Unity Government had become MS & RW Auctioneers, who keep selling the country’s priceless assets to China and India."
