State Minister Nalaka Godahewa is an electrical engineer and has no knowledge whatsoever regarding marine life, turtles or corals, says Dr. Ajantha Perera.
Dr. Ajantha addressing a media briefing said that “Godahewa knows about how light bulbs glow and electric fans revolve. He doesn’t know about marine life”
Dr. Ajantha Perera made this observation while commenting on the devastation to Sri Lanka’s marine environment following the XPress Pearl incident.
State Minister of Coastal Conservation Dr. Nalaka Godahewa recently said that dead marine species had washed ashore to the beaches due to high tide.
He also said that various parties were attempting to link the death of marine species with the XPress Pearl disaster.
