The opposition claims that the prevailing power crisis and the shortage of essential commodities will continue.
Speaking during a media briefing this morning, Parliamentarian SM Marikkar said power cuts are being imposed due to the mismanagement of the government.
MP Marikkar said there was no other option but to impose power cuts since the government is unable to source funds to import coal and crude oil which are used to generate power and fulfil 50% of the daily demand.
The Parliamentarian claimed the foreign reserves will decrease daily, raising inflation which will in turn affect the import of essential items including medicine and food items.
He said the country is facing gas and cement shortages with the price of cement increasing to Rs.2,000.
The MP said no sector is content with the present administration due to the current situation faced by the country.
He said daily wage earners in the construction industry have lost their sources of income due to the cement shortage.
MP Marikkar said the government which came into power claiming to run the country using artificial intelligence has caused the country to become a failing state.
On a separate note, MP Marikkar predicted that the ruling party will split into three sections by next August.
He said the public is ready to depose the government adding however the current opposition will not take any swift action as they will face an election and opt for a democratic transition.
The MP claimed the Sri Lanka Freedom Party led by former President Maithripala Sirisena and all leftist factions will form one alliance with over 50 MPs joining the opposition ranks.
MP Marikkar said the opposition will dissolve the Parliament once they gain a majority and will call for a general election.
He said only Ministers Johnston Fernando, Mahindananda Aluthgamage and Rohitha Abeygunawardhana are content at present.
