The Chinese company, selected to carry out the Gin Nilwala Project, has complained to President Maithripala Sirisena that a leading politician and a top official have attempted to solicit a bribe to grant approval to carry out the work. 

 

It is a multi-sector development project aimed at providing drinking water, address irrigation needs and improve the existing irrigation systems and is also expected to generate electricity and provide drinking water to the Hambantota district.   


Recently, President Maithripala Sirisena had warned of politicians attempting to solicit bribes for project approvals.
