President! Pay the telecom bill in Sirikothe for six years prior to selling the profitable telecom!

The Telecom Union held a press conference yesterday (21) at Guru Madura Hall in Colombo, with the theme of ‘stop the sale of the telecom company that provides revenue to the government immediately’. 
According to Hemantha Netthikumara, president of the Telecom Union, who represents the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna, the three hundred and fifty thousand rupees in internet charges and one and a half thousand rupees in phone call charges are outstanding bills from Siri Kotha.
 
The chairman of the union stated that this arrears amount has not been paid since 2016 and that despite being informed on several occasions to pay these arrears bills, no steps have been taken to pay them.

As a result, he believes that President Ranil Wickremesinghe should pay the telephone bills of his party headquarters before selling the telecom company.
