Focus on solutions, not who caused the crises


Instead of going after those who are responsible for the current crises, everyone needs to focus on what action could be taken to provide immediate relief to the public, President Gotabaya Rajapaksa said in his May Day message.

Once again the President invited all political parties to come to a consensus on behalf of the people to overcome the challenge the country faces and called on the working people to put politics aside and help steer the struggle in a positive direction with a pro-people revolutionary transformation on behalf of the working class.

“In the past three years, the group that faced the most serious challenges in our country is our working class. They are also the ones who were resilient in the face of all these challenges and made great commitments to strengthen the national economy. The day-to-day challenges they face are even more intense today. The Government is taking various approaches to liberate the people and alleviate the oppressive nature of the situation.

The loss of foreign exchange has created many issues. Managing all these factors is the way to solve the issues.

Instead of following up on who is responsible for the current problematic situation, what we need to do now is focus on what action can be taken to provide immediate relief to the public, and also to go for the most appropriate and efficient programme to find solutions to the burning issues of the people,” he said.
