Minister of Investment Promotion Dhammika Perera says Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe should resign as the Minister of Finance.
Minister Perera said the Prime Minister as the Finance Minister is obstructing all means of dollar generating avenues.
The newly appointed Minister also challenged the Finance Minister’s 10 economic advisors for an open debate on media.
The Minister speaking in Parliament today said he would show each advisor how to provide solutions to the country’s issues that he said Premier Wickremesinghe earlier claimed had no solutions.
Minister Perera also charged that he will not let Sri Lanka fall towards destitution, in the face of a severe dollar shortage.
He challenged the Finance Minister to an open debate, adding he will enter the debate without a planned script.
The Minister also recalled that he is ready to repeat his debate from 2019.
