Nov 21, Colombo: Minister Prasanna Ranatunga, Chief Organizer of the ruling party, said in Katunayake yesterday (20) that Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) will unconditionally support the budget, presented by the President Ranil Wickremesinghe in his capacity as the Finance Minister.

He also emphasized that the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna has not set any conditions to support President Ranil Wickremesinghe in the current situation.

The Minister further said that Mr. Ranil Wickramasinghe was appointed as the President with the support of SLPP and therefore the work will be done with mutual understanding between the two parties.

Minister Ranatunga stated that the party would support the budget and give the best possible support to help the country recover from the economic crisis, and added that the budget presented by the government under the current situation at this time is not a welfare budget.

The Minister said the opposition Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) is a group of people who are afraid to accept challenges and they only know criticism.

Mr. Ranatunga said the SJB does not provide any support to solve the problems of the country and added that they are in the opposition and disrupting the program implemented by the government for the country.
