Minister of Health, Rajitha Senarathna stated that the president has convened a special discussion next week regarding the Horana Tyre factory project.

He expressed these views following a ceremony held in Udugama – Galle this morning in response to a question raised by journalists regarding the recent communiqué issued by the Minister of Development Strategies and International Trade, Malik Samarawickrama regarding the project.

Earlier, during a Cabinet Press Briefing, Minster Rajitha Senarathna stated that the prime minister had taken part in the foundation laying ceremony without having proper knowledge about the investor.

However, Minister of Development Strategies and International Trade Malik Samarawickrama in his communiqué has regarded Minister Senarathna’s statement to be false.

Furthermore, denying Minister Rajitha Senarathna’s statement that an acre of land was given at 100 rupees, Minister Malik Samarawickrama has stated that the Government Chief Valuer has estimated the value of the land at 170 million rupees.

Minister Malik Samarawickrama in his communiqué has further stated that a sum of 10,000 rupees will be charged from the investor for the land annually.

However, Minister Rajitha Senarathna stated that if the investor is to pay 10,000 rupees a year, considering the land extent provided, his statement that the land has been given at a value of 100 rupees per acre is valid.
