Mahinda questions decision to give 15000 acres to China

Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa has questioned the decision taken by the Government to give 15,000 acres of land to China for investment purposes.Speaking in Parliament today, the former President said that the land belongs to Sri Lanka and should be given to Sri Lankan investors. He said that foreign investors have land in their country to invest and they will never sell it to Sri Lanka so selling Sri Lankan land to a foreign investor is not favourable to Sri Lanka.
