The JVP says the government has not taken any effort to reduce the burden the people are faced with amidst a serious economic crisis through the Budget.
Speaking to NewsRadio former Parliamentarian Sunil Handunnetti said the government has been severely affected due to the depreciation of the rupee.
He said some goods aren’t available while people don’t have funds to purchase goods or lack sufficient income revenues.
Handunnetti said this is a serious economic crisis, adding, in addition, a gas and milk powder shortage with exorbitant prices for goods prevalent.
The former MP said the government has no interest or ability to address this situation.
