The government has been accused of handing over prime land to multinational companies and trying to set up a casino zone in Colombo by the JVP.
JVP Propaganda Secretary and parliamentarian Vijitha Herath told a press conference today that the government was planning on creating a casino zone in D.R. Wijewardena Mawatha in Colombo.
According to Herath, the government’s move to hand over land to multinational companies was a betrayal similar to that committed by the signing of the Kandyan convention in 1815.
A casino, which the opposition UNP alleged was being operating illegally on D.R. Wijewardena Mawatha, brought focus a move by the government to create a casino zone on D.R. Wijewardena Mawatha.
After the allegation was made in parliament last year, the respective casino was raided by the police.
