The NFTUC is affiliated to the National Freedom Front (NFF) and called for a press conference yesterday to brief on the Colombo Port's East Container Terminal (ECT) issue.
National Organiser of the NFTUC Karunathilaka Herath, General Secretary of the Independent Port Employees Union D.K. Jayasekera, General Secretary of the Jathika Nidahas Sevaka Sangamaya (JSS) Thushara Mendis, President of the Jathika Nidahas Sevaka Sangamaya of the Engineering Corporation Sameera Sudarshana and its General Secretary Nalaka Silva were also present at the press conference.
The allegations levelled by Karunathilaka Herath comes in the wake of reports on social media which stated that both members of the government and the opposition are receiving monthly wages from the Adani Group of India and as a result, are acting according to the whims and fancies of the Indian conglomerate.
However, it is now being revealed how the Chinese Yuan played a role behind the spate of protests that were initiated against the government's move to bring in Indian investment for the development of the ECT.
