Country’s reputation at stake – UNP
UNP Deputy Leader Ruwan Wijewardene said the government has during the past few days acted to destroy the reputation that Sri Lanka had built among the international community, in one moment.
Wijewardene said China black-listed the People’s Bank which was among the best thousand banks of the world and was among the best four hundred banks of Asia, not because of the fault of the bank but due to the government’s imprudent actions.
Wijewardene made these comments when he joined a business meeting held at Sirikotha Party headquarters yesterday (2).
The entire agriculture industry is in danger because an organic fertilizer project was dumped on the heads of farmers all of a sudden. In the midst of this, a racket where types of soil are being sold as organic fertilizer too has been created.
The Agriculture Ministry is not taking any steps to inquire into this.
He added that no harvest can be obtained from fruits and vegetable cultivations using this organic fertilizer.” Paddy farmers have still not commenced their tilling due to this problem.
