JVP MP Sunil Handunnetti has written to President Maithripala Sirisena in connection with the leasing of the Hambantota Port to a Chinese company for a period of 99 years.

Handunnetti’s letter stated that the Prime Minister had already announced that the relevant agreement will be signed on January 7, 2017.

MP Handunnetti, who stated that his party does not agree with the leasing of the Hambantota port to a private company, has termed Hambantota port as one of the sensitive geographical location that has a significant impact in the country’s economy as well as in national defence.

The letter to the president by the JVP also stated that people are not aware of the details of this agreement.

MP Handunnetti has requested the President to suspend the signing of the agreement and provide an opportunity for the people to know the contents of the lease agreement.
