* Sri Lanka's main opposition to send a larger group of legislators to Mattala airport and Hambantota port
Wed, Apr 30, 2014, 09:47 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 30, Colombo: Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party, undeterred by the earlier mob attack on a group of party legislators, plans to send a larger group of parliamentarians to the Mattala airport and Hambantota port on an inspection tour.

UNP MP Joseph Michael Perera has told the media that a larger group of legislators will visit the two mega infrastructure developments in the south next Saturday (May 03).

The first visit by five UNP MPs was disrupted when a mob of ruling party supporters attacked the MPs at both places and turned them away.

"As politicians representing the public, the UNP members had a right to inspect facilities constructed using public funds," the UNP MP has reportedly said.
