The government has blamed the formation of all queues including gas and fuel on the Samagi Jana Balawegaya.
Parliamentarian Lalith Ellawala speaking at a media briefing this morning said the highest number of loans, since Sri Lanka gained independence, was obtained by the good governance government.
MP Ellawala charged the Leader of the Opposition and the JVP of aiming to gain power through an upcoming election based on national crises.
The Parliamentarian claimed the United National Party, the SJB, and former President Maithripala Sirisena are responsible for the prevailing issues.
He cited Rs.2.2 trillion as the only loans obtained until 2005 since gaining independence adding however Rs.5.2 trillion in loans was obtained during the period between 2005 and 2015.
MP Ellawala claimed Rs.6.5 trillion in loans was obtained between 2015 and 2019.
The Parliamentarian called on the relevant individuals to appear before media and provide information on how the Rs.6.5 trillion was utilised.
Joining the media briefing Parliamentarian Milan Jayathilake said kerosene oil queues are forming owing to the prevalent gas shortage.
The MP said the public obtains bottles of kerosene oil and not in jerry cans.
However, the MP said the high demand for kerosene oil formed as the supply in Colombo is limited and urged that this development not be misinterpreted.
MP Jayathilake added kerosene oil is mostly used at service stations and consumption is generally minimal
He noted that when the shortage of gas is addressed the demand for kerosene oil will also reduce.
