Sat, Mar 8, 2014, 12:44 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Mar 08, Colombo: Opposition Leader of Sri Lanka's parliament Ranil Wickremasinghe has called on parliament to set up a special parliamentary select committee to probe what are termed as unsolicited projects.

He told parliament that it was important to probe such proposals.

He noted that the request for a special select committee was being made with regard to the Colombo Port City project, which has become a topic of much discussion.

According to Wickremasinghe, even a sub-committee appointed under the Committee on Public Accounts would suffice to address this issue.

He pointed out that such a platform would enable the government and the opposition to engage in a discussion before reaching a final decision on a respective project.

The Opposition Leader added that the government has failed to present to parliament important details related to the Colombo Port City project.

Chief Government Whip, Minister Dinesh Gunawardena has assured that all details related to the project will be presented to the House.
