Samagi Jana Balawegaya Parliamentarian Harin Fernando says the 2022 Budget proposal is a document that proves the damage done to the country during President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s two years in office.
The MP speaking in Parliament said two years ago when the President was elected the people rejoiced.
MP Fernando said the government is claiming the economic crisis and other issues in the country are a result of a global crisis. He questioned where queues were formed to purchase goods due to the impact of COVID-19, apart from poorly managed countries such as Libya or Lebanon.
MP Fernando said the country needs a policy, politically.
He noted there must be a health policy to establish a CAT lab at each hospital in the country, and provide insurance for each citizen.
The MP said instead of debating on whether or not the former good governance government did anything, the government must present a new programme if it doesn’t want to fail.
