Japanese firm interested in thermal power plant in Sampoor

A major Japanese firm expressed interest in constructing a thermal power plant in Sampoor, Trincomalee.

Former MR regime had given permission to an Indian government firm to build a thermal power plant in the area. Consequently, people of Sampoor lived in camps for 9 years.

After 2015 presidential election Srisena government released nearly 816 acres of land, but now a Japanese firm has asked nearly 500 acre land to build thermal plant in Sampoor.

Sampoor villagers have expressed shocked about this news and they have handed over a letter to the opposition leader.

“We have suffered enough already. This time we can’t allow this to happen. Also we want a clear stand from our members of parliament”   they have said
