Five SDPs including Krrish still at ‘identification’ stage

Though Sri Lankans can challenge strategic development projects (SDPs) which include Shangri La, Crown (Casino project) and Krrish when the first gazette is issued, there hasn’t been any such opposition.
People are not exercising their right of making written objections or representations regarding such projects due to lack of awareness or apathy, a top government administrator said, adding that there is transparency in such project approvals. A streamlined procedure including the entertaining of public representations is followed by the line ministry before parliamentary approval is sought to implement SDPs.
