Fri, Dec 20, 2013, 10:33 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 20, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) alleged that the data and statistics presented by the government on economic development are distorted and called for a commission to probe the matter.

JVP politburo member, parliamentarian Anura Kumara Dissanayake told parliament that the country's economy is therefore blown up with distorted data.

According to Dissanayake, there are now doubts over data and statistics presented by the Central Bank of Sri Lanka and the Department of Census and Statistics and the government has placed every citizen in the country at risk with its distorted data and statistics.

Dissanayake called for an independent commission to investigate into the matter since the government's actions has placed the entire country in jeopardy and present recommendations to be adopted to address the problem.
