Sri Lanka port workers objecting to a plan to get Indian-led investment to develop a container in Colombo have offered to find money to build it and instead suggested that the parliament of the country be sold.

The partly built East Container Terminal of the Colombo Port is part of a geopolitical and economic deal to get Indian investment into the port which gets a large part of its transhipment from India.

“There is a local investor and that is the employees of the Sri Lankan Port Authority,” Shyamal Sumanaratne, a leader of the protesting workers told reporters.
