The Samagi Jana Balawegaya claims leaders should provide solutions to the prevalent issues instead of making sporadic statements on the country’s situation.
Speaking at an event in Kandy, Leader of the Opposition Sajith Premadasa said the leaders are behaving as if they are news presenters.
He said even the opposition can make statements regarding the country’s issues. MP Premadasa said the government is unable to provide solutions to the people’s issues.
He expressed his regret to citizens who are burdened by the economic issues.
MP Premadasa said although the public faces shortages of fuel, food and gas those in power remain unaffected by the issues faced.
He stated all predictions made by the Samagi Jana Balawegaya have turned out to be correct and the public is beginning to understand the reasons behind the party’s decision not to join the government.
On a separate note, MP Premadasa said foreign reserves that were intended to be used for the purchase of essentials such as medicine and food were used to repay debt.
He added the government requested the public to remain patient after making such decisions.
Further, the Opposition Leader said it is foolish for the government to prepare for the forthcoming Provincial Council Elections at a time when the people demand a new government.
