“This government is a failure. The SLPP government has not given any solution. The only party that can provide solutions to the crisis is the UNP.”
The UNP leader assuring to present a comprehensive economic plan to rebuild the country, said in order ensure a sustainable income for all Sri Lankans, especially the rural folks, answers must be provided to micro and macroeconomic issues.
Dismissing the rumors that the UNP has made a pact with the government, Mr. Wickremasinghe said the only pact the party makes is with the people.
