Pivithuru Hela Urumaya General Secretary and Parliamentarian Udaya Gammanpila opposed the new proposal to build a $5.19 billion road project to connect India and Sri Lanka through a sea-bridge.
The observation was made at a press conference held in Colombo on Monday (21).
The MP also described the project as a part of the implementation of the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA).
“No doubt, India will allocate money for the project, but will expect a larger reward later,” he added.
Indian media reported that India is set to engage in high-level talks with Sri Lanka for the ambitious $5.19 billion road project to connect both the nations through a sea-bridge and an underwater tunnel by October.
