The company also raised concerns over the recent violence and the demise of an individual in Rambukkana.
John Keells called on the leadership of the country to take decisive action and be conscious of the possibility of continued social unrest if the calls for change and good governance by the people are not facilitated in a manner that ensures a sustainable solution.
