“We have always offered our unstinting support to overcome this crisis. It’s good to finally have a productive meeting with the CB Governor and Treasury Secretary.

SJB MP Dr Harsha de Silva tweeting after the event said, “Situation grave. Going to be an unenviable gigantic challenge for anyone to save. Country’s economy is in grave danger, and there are no dollars, nor rupees available as of now” he tweeted. “The truth is bitter. But this is the truth. We WILL FIND A WAY OUT. All citizens of #SriLanka must rally together. Think of country before self.”
