Former JVP MP Dr. Nalinda Jayatissa said the All- Party Government could not find solutions to the people’s crises because the country has fallen into this calamitous state solely due to those who will be members of the All-Party Government.
Speaking to the public recently, he said it was the common man who faced numerous difficulties and not the top officials. He said those in Government and members who previously served in the Government but were now in the Opposition face no shortages or difficulties. “Officials at the top somehow travel and their journeys are not cancelled due to the fuel crisis. They do not run out of fuel because they own half of the fuel stations in Sri Lanka. When there was a gas and fertiliser shortage in the country, officials were unaffected,” Jayatissa said. Meanwhile, General Secretary of the JVP, Tilvin Silva addressing the media recently said citizens were unable to cope with the crises.
He predicted that the situation would worsen in the coming months, with half of the industries collapsing.
