Leader of the Opposition Sajith Premadasa says the best solution to resolving the dollar shortage is to recover the funds cited in the Pandora Papers.
He said it will thereby enable the purchase of medicine, as the main contributing factor to the medicine shortage is the dollar shortage.
MP Premadasa said this will address the medicine shortage and the dollar crisis.
Speaking at an event today he said obtaining loans from China, India, the United States and the European Union are not permanent solutions.
MP Premadasa noted that while the country’s stolen assets and resources must be recovered, the current government cannot be trusted to work towards this.
Premadasa added that all funds that have been stolen will be recovered under a government led by the Samagi Jana Balawegaya.
