Country pursued destructive economic, political policies for decades – Anura Kumara
The current situation in the country implies the perilous and destructive nature of the economic and political policies pursued by the authorities who have ruled the country for decades, National People’s Power leader MP Anura Kumara Dissanayake said yesterday (20).
Dissanayake also said that a political mechanism that does not improve the lives of the people and strengthen the country’s economy is not useful to the public. Dissanayake made these observations during the inaugural session of the National People’s Power representatives’ conference held yesterday (20) morning at Monarch Imperial, Battaramulla.
The conference was held under the theme “The solution to build a broken motherland”, and accordingly, a handbook which included the vision was launched during the conference. The NPP Leader also pointed out that it has been proved that Sri Lanka cannot continue with the traditional socio-economic-political system it adhered to for decades. Dissanayake further stated that natural disasters, such as the pandemic, are not the cause of the current crisis situation in the country and that in order to overcome this crisis, a sound economic and political policy needs to be established in the country.
Dissanayake also said that the answers to the crisis situation of the country could not be found individually or in isolation. He further added that the majority of those leaving the country are not looking for money but for social security.
He emphasized the importance of a collective effort to resolve issues faced by the country. “The NPP is ready to save the country from further crisis and rebuild it,” he also added.
