At a time when the country is passing through a dark period, every citizen must unite and come forward to rescue the country from this tragedy, President of National Movement for Social Justice, Karu Jayasuriya said.
Jayasuriya recently met trade union leaders to discuss the current economic crisis and obtain their suggestions and recommendations to resolve it.
“The trade union leaders, who represent millions of working people in the country, have huge responsibility than others in connection with the present crisis in the country. We are aware the services rendered by the trade unionists in the advancement of economy as well as in their power and strength in the field of politics. Due to this I invited them for discussion”, Jayasuriya said.
Jayasuriya said the rulers must consider that bringing the lives of crisis impacted people to normal is their bounden duty. Uninterrupted power supply must be ascertained while stipulating a reasonable price for essential commodities including milk powder as well as LP Gas with immediate effect. Then industrial and export sectors as well as the tourism industry will grow fast, he added.
“The impacts caused to the education sector for the past two years must be fixed immediately. The education must be considered as an invaluable investment of the country. The agriculture which is in the phase of destruction must be rebuilt again. The mismanagement and wrong decision taken by the previous government caused all crises in the country today,” Jayasuriya added.
