* Each Sri Lankan is indebted Rs. 12,500 due to losses of Ceylon Petroleum Corporation - Opposition Leader
Mon, Jul 21, 2014, 10:37 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

July 21, Colombo: Leader of Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) leader and Opposition Ranil Wickremasinghe said that each Sri Lankan is indebted Rs. 12,500 due to the losses incurred by the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC).

The UNP leader revealed this at a rally held in Galagedara electorate yesterday.

Wickremasinghe, who toured the electorate Sunday, participated in religious observations and met people.

Addressing the rally he further said that the UNP MPs's visit to the Sapugaskanda petroleum refinery was blocked by pro-government trade unions to prevent MPs from exposing further losses.

A group of UNP parliamentarians who were on an observation tour in the petroleum refinery in Sapugaskanda were turned back last week due to a protest by the employees of the CPC.

The UNP parliamentarians have vowed to visit the refinery again.
