(Colombo, Lankapuvath) – Minister of Ports, Highways & Shipping, Rohitha Abeygunawardane challenged Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremasinghe to fill at least a tiny patch of 10 perches of sea in the Galle Face Port Township using the Sirikotha funds instead of shedding crocodile tears over massive development projects launched by the government.

Pointing out that an area extent of 580 acres of sea will be filled to create Colombo Port City and the Chinese company, which has been given the contract is continuing the work satisfactorily, Minister said despite this, the UNP is leveling baseless criticism.

Chinese President Xi Jinping will inaugurate the construction work of the new Port City on September 17, Minister said. The miracle-city will have hotels, massive shopping complexes, hospitals, water games and many modern facilities, he said.
