Prime Minister’s comment on ministers being responsible for fuel crisis ridiculous: Weerawansa

Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa’s comment that the occurrence of a fuel shortage in Sri Lanka was due to misinformation spread by ministers would be ridiculous, said former Minister Wimal Weerawansa, speaking to media this (07) morning.

Despite such a comment being made by the Prime Minister or someone else, it can be defined as an idiotic sentiment, Weerawansa pointed out, adding that no further fuel shortages should occur in the country, was that comment true.

If commercial banks do not open letters of credit (LC) for fuel and LP gas imports, the importation process will be hampered, Weerawansa went on, emphasising that this is the reason behind the shortage of fuel in the country. Everyone, therefore, has to accept the fact that there is, in fact, a fuel shortage in the country, which was triggered by the forex crisis, the former Minister added.

Should someone go on saying that there is no forex crisis nor any fuel crisis in the country and sleep at night, he should be hit by a rod on the head to wake up next morning recovered, Weerawansa further noted.
