Opposition’s doomsday theories proven wrong – Minister
Highways Minister Johnston Fernando observed that the “so-called economic experts in the SJB” had predicted that country’s economy would go bankrupt but the Opposition’s wish was not realised. The Minister also assured that the country will not be bankrupt even though it is going through a rough time.
Minister Fernando made these observations in reply to Samagi Jana Balawegaya MP Lakshman Kiriella who alleged that the Finance Minister is not managing the country’s economic crisis properly.
Minister Fernando in reply pointed out that the Finance Minister is successfully handling the situation and that he would be able to revitalise the country’s economy despite the challenges.
Minister Fernando also requested the Opposition to be far-sighted in politics.
