Parliamentarian Patali Champika Ranawaka charges that the 2022 Budget does not provide any solutions to the people’s grievances.
The MP addressing a function in Hatton yesterday said, the main issue of payment of loans, the dollar deficit, and other critical issues have not been addressed through the Budget.
MP Ranawaka said the country is on the brink of bankruptcy.
The MP said international financial institutions have also made predictions in this regard.
MP Ranawaka said gas, coal, fertiliser, medicine and other resources cannot be brought down owing to the financial crisis.
He claimed the younger generation has understood this, and are trying to leave the country, adding that the country must be redeemed and it cannot be done through mere slogans.
The MP refuted claims that political parties that have existed for 70 years are unable to solve the prevalent issues.
The Parliamentarian said one group that can redeem the country, is a group that loves the country regardless of party differences and an educated youth.
