Let us not repeat mistakes of the past

Towards a Visionary National Energy Policy:

It appears that history is repeating itself. The National Energy Policy, which was drafted in 2005 and finally approved in 2006 is to be revised. This is not the first time this promise is made considering the most lopsided energy policy pushed down the throats of the citizens in Sri Lanka. But unfortunately history is repeating itself by adopting the same procedure of drafting a policy with no stake holder consultation and then giving a short notice asking for comments, which will then be used to pretend that there has been stake holder consultations.
