Addressing the press briefing on cabinet decisions on Tuesday, Minister
Dr. Rajitha Senaratne expressed views on the Colombo - Fort land issue.
Cabinet Spokesman, Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne said that the land was
already allocated for the Sirasa Media Organisation.
Speaking on the issue, Dr. Rajitha Senaratne said:
During the previous regime, especially the former Secretary to the Ministry of
Defence, forcefully claimed the ownership of the said land and carried out
urban development activities on it, as a means of expressing anger over the
Sirasa Media Organisation that reported unbiased news,
and brought to light the former regime's shortcomings and corruption.
He went on to note that new government came into power to free the clutches
of such individuals who forcibly take the law into their hands. Sirasa news
