Fri, Feb 7, 2014, 09:20 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 07, Colombo: Parliamentarians of Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) today engaged in a protest in parliament over the continuous breakdowns in the Norochcholai coal power plant and the government's failure to address the issue.

The UNP legislators stood in parliament holding placards against the government's failure in addressing the power crisis in the country when members in parliament were speaking on the power crisis.

The Chinese company that built Sri Lanka's only coal power plant in Norochcholai has assured the Sri Lankan government to repair all technical failures in the ailing plant.

The UNP MPs also protested against the recent price hike of milk powder and the overall cost of living.

Deputy Speaker Chandima Weerakkody had then adjourned the House amidst the commotion until the 18th of this month.
