Opposition protests held to bloat egos of their leaders – MP

0 13

Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna MP Jagath Kumara yesterday said protests organized by the Opposition in Colombo will not affect the government but will only bloat the egos of some Opposition leaders.

He said that although the people were distressed by the rise in commodity prices due to the fall in foreign exchange reserves as a result of a number of factors related to the COVID-19 crisis, they were not prepared to give back power to the good governance government that had brought destruction to the country.

He was speaking to the media subsequent to visiting and receiving blessings from the two Chief Prelates of the Malwatte and Asgiriya Chapters on March 15.

The MP said that when they were in the Opposition, he and his group engaged in thousands of similar protests and they only helped in the existence of the Opposition but was of no use to the people.

He stressed that the government would move forward despite the Opposition holding even a thousand protests and that the opposition should understand that nothing will stop the government.

MP Jagath Kumara said further that the President and the Finance Minister are engaged in a massive effort to rescue the country from the prevailing crisis and that as of now discussions are being held with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and factions from which loan assistance was obtained.

He said that the people have a good understanding of the time when Sajith, Ranil and others who are accusing the government today, ruled the country and that the people gave two thirds power to the present government because they were fed up with good governance.

He said that there were a number of businessmen in the country who were trying to make a living even through dead bodies and that they were taking advantage of the tax concessions provided by the government to make a fortune.

He said that these businessmen who get tax concessions from the government and do not give its benefits to the people are only trying to ridicule the people and that the country cannot be built without implementing the Sura-saradiel theory which takes something from the big businessmen and gives it to the public.
