  2. “We have no rupee revenue, and now we have to print another (one) trillion rupees” PM to Reuters

    Isn’t this a lie can’t we go for local borrowing to raise this money? IMF is not going to be happy with printing money and this might stop and international assistance that was to come in the near future.

  3. Print money or raise it through local borrowing will determine if we get international help or not? Let’s see how intelligent out lot are…

  4. Harsha de Silva another failure added to the SJB and their strategy to avoid hard times and playing the waiting game to enter politics when times are calmer.

    No one will vote for politicians like you selfish power hungry lot of politicians.

    Those who step up in hard times will rise up and those who play the SJB games will lose.

    Rajapaksas and the SJB should go home too.

  5. “SLPP yesterday (24) said that Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe must solve the economic crisis before bringing in a Constitutional amendments”

    If true they are inviting another thrashing from the people who are facing a crisis that gets worse each day this Government fails to take action…
