Prime Minister Dinesh Gunawardena says that even in the developed countries of the world, there are long queues and traffic jams to buy essential materials.
“Our country is facing an economic crisis. Today we are well aware of the food security problem that has arisen due to the economic crisis and the world economic recession. Even in developed countries, those countries are transforming into a huge traffic jam to get essential materials in queues. In the same way, we have made it a part of this program in order to increase income by reducing expenditure when facing an economic crisis, and to give priority to effective projects without giving priority to their own wasteful projects. We have never faced such a crisis in our lifetime. In order to face their own even greater crisis, we need to change or control the shape of our people’s life to some extent. If we are able to fulfill this short-term interim chapter in this way, we will be able to divert a large amount of money spent for that purpose from the budget document for public needs.”
Prime Minister Dinesh Gunawardena said this while addressing the Sitawaka Regional Development Committee meeting.
