There was no fuel crisis in the country – Mahinda Rajapaksa (VIDEO)

Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa has said that there was no fuel crisis in the country and that the inexperienced and politically ignorant Minister Udaya Gammanpila’s statements caused the people to queue in front of fuel stations.

“Today, President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa has taken steps to take his country in the same direction and develop it by expressing his views very clearly. As the Prime Minister, I believe that all of us, not only as Ministers and other Members of Parliament, but also as public servants, must work to implement that program.

Recently we know that there was talk of a fuel crisis. But there was no such crisis. People get upset when they are told that there are fuel stocks which are enough for only four or three days. Those are some false statements. Because in our era we only had fuel for 24 hours. But luckily the ships had been brought in, all they had to do was unload them. Now the ship had arrived at the port. By making certain statements in such cases – I think it was due to some lack of political understanding or experience – people became agitated, unnecessarily scared, and formed queues. But that situation has changed today. It will keep changing.

We need to develop our country. We developed highways, today 98% of the country has electricity. We need to improve the water supply in the same way. Vasudeva Nanayakkara is carrying out that task. That is how we give priority to fulfilling the needs of these people. ”

The Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa said this while participating in the opening ceremony of the new building of the Narammala Pradeshiya Sabha constructed at a cost of Rs. 133 million yesterday (05).
