Despite the ongoing problems in the country, the media is only covering the gas queues, when there are ‘queues’ near the Colombo Port City formed by people who wish to enjoy the view and purchase clothes, said Ports and Naval Affairs Minister Rohitha Abeygunawardena, speaking to a rally held yesterday (16).
“There are problems, it’s not that there are not. The gas crisis is a problem, we admit. And the dollar crisis is a problem. No tourist came for two years. But like those queues, I recently welcomed media to cover the two and a half-kilometre queue near the Port City when it was opened. I asked them to cover that queue too. People queued themselves to buy clothes. They should’ve pointed their mikes to them too,” he said.
