* Sri Lanka's governing party ally to be vigilant over construction of hotel projects
Sun, Apr 27, 2014, 06:13 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 27, Colombo: A coalition partner of Sri Lankan government, the Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) says it will be vigilant over the construction of hotel projects that were approved last week in parliament under the Strategic Development Act to see if casinos are secretively built or operated.

The JHU said it will continue its struggle to ensure the government stands by its 'no casino' hotel projects.

JHU Leader Ven. Omalpe Sobhitha Thero told the media that although the government garnered the required majority of votes in the House for the three Gazette Notifications under the Strategic Development Act (SDA), the JHU would continue to maintain its vigilance to ascertain if the government would genuinely keep its promises.

The JHU voted against the legislation in parliament last week.

Ven. Sobitha Thero said the JHU has made its stand clear since the inception and if the government deceives the JHU, the party will then take to the streets un-hesitantly together with the people.
