Samagi Jana Balawegaya Parliamentarian Rajitha Senaratne says until the Rajapaksa’s remain in power Sri Lanka will not receive any relief from developed European nations.
Speaking at a media briefing today the MP said the government incited racism against the Muslim community and therefore the Middle East will not support Sri Lanka either.
He noted that with the formation of an all-party government fuel can be obtained on a concessionary basis, or under a late payment scheme from the Middle East.
MP Senaratne added a democratic governing framework must be put forward for the international community to come forth in support of Sri Lanka reiterating that under the present government funds or relief will not be reviewed.
He charged that the entire country is suffering because of one individual.
Meanwhile, General Secretary of the SJB Parliamentarian Ranjith Madduma Bandara said at the end of the next three weeks Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe will announce a further three weeks of hardships.
MP Bandara charged that the government has failed to announce a date for the supply of gas, including a solution to the shortage.
He noted that Sri Lanka requires 600,000MT of fertiliser, while the government is importing only 65,000MT.
