Power cuts unavoidable – CEB Unions

Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) Joint Trade Union Alliance stated that the exact times of the power cuts will be announced soon. Its Convener Ranjan Jayalal said that a situation will arise where the country will accordingly have to be closed down.

He said the crisis was exacerbated by two ministers who had no knowledge of the subject and had various talks to save their own skin, adding that the day of closure of the country without electricity was imminent.

He said India would not lend fuel to Sri Lanka for power generation, adding that their need was to take control of thermal power plants and then supply oil.
