The Samagi Jana Balawegaya says a trade mafia has taken control of all sectors of the country, including the health sector and essential commodities.
Speaking during a media briefing today, Parliamentarian Mujibur Rahuman said it is futile to have a government, if businessmen control all sectors.
MP Rahuman said the present administration only stands for businessmen adding it is clear from the evidence presented by the Attorney Generals Department that data was deliberately deleted from the National Medicines Regulatory Authority.
Meanwhile the Parliamentarian claimed the government’s attempt to control the price of rice through media spectacles has failed.
MP Rahuman said the stocks of rice which were seized belonged to farmers adding the stocks belonging to a Deputy Minister and an organiser were not seized.
