0 116

Colombo District SJB MP Dr. Harsha De Silva told Parliament that he is happy about the IMF Extended Fund Facility (EFF) and is not hypocritical to not appreciate it. He said this while joining the debate on a special statement made by   President Ranil Wickremesinghe on the IMF Extended Fund Facility in Parliament yesterday.

MP De Silva said that this debate should be held positively as there are many cases in the agreement where the common people have been affected. “We need to change them. Therefore, it is suggested that we go into this debate positively,” he said.

“We hope to give a detailed answer to this series of proposals presented by the President. We were not against everything. I remember the present President told the previous government to go to the IMF on several occasions. It did not happen. If that had happened, the country wouldn’t have gone bankrupt,” De Silva said.

Meanwhile, Chief Opposition Whip Lakshman Kiriella said that the Opposition has always supported the Government in times of need.

“The President said that those in the Opposition did not support obtaining the IMF Extended Fund Facility. Did the Opposition not support the 21st Amendment of the Constitution? It would never have been adopted if not for the support of the Opposition,” Kiriella said. “We always gave our support when necessary. We want to hold elections because democracy is important to us.”
