His firm has just made an unsolicited bid for acquiring control of Mangalore Chemicals & Fertilizers (MCF) but Deepak Fertilisers and Petrochemicals Corporation Chairman Sailesh C Mehta, 53, insists he wants the issue to be sorted out smoothly.

“I hope there would be some amicable settlement,” Mehta said in his first public comments after Deepak Fertilisers, which owns 25.3 per cent in MCF, made an open offer last week for a further 26 per cent stake in the company. The offer, if it succeeds, will help Mehta seize majority control of MCF. The offer pits him directly against Vijay Mallya, who owns 21.99 per cent in MCF, and Kolkata-based industrialist Saroj Poddar whose company, Zuari Fertilisers and Chemicals, bought a 16.43 per cent stake in MCF in early 2013.

The JHU has officially declared its opposition to the intention of the  Government to allow Australian millionaires Packer and others to begin  construction and operation of a gambling hotel in an exclusive high value plot  of land in Colombo. Minister Champaka Ranawaka has withdrawn support because the  Cabinet has not also sought the agreement of the Mahanayakas. The  Mahinda-Rajapakse government has ignored it and the invitation to the  Australians stands unimpaired. As expected, the JVP has joined with the JHU.
