Sri Lanka’s Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa says that the people need a path to survival at present, and not jogging tracks.
He slammed the government for increasing the prices of goods gradually and adding more pressure on to the people.
“The Government must take measures to build a path towards people’s welfare,” he added.
The commissions that will follow from the transfer of power of the Yugadanavi Power Plant will create a smooth path for the rulers, but not for the people, he said.
He said if the government calls for an election at this time, the people would respond appropriately.
