Local Govt’s tax reliefs aggravated economic crisis: AKD

Certain tax reliefs given by the current Government has aggravated the economic crisis in the country, Jathika Jana Balawegaya (JJB) Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake said in Parliament today (3).

Moving the Adjournment Motion on the Central Bank Annual Report 2020, Dissanayake claimed that the country is in a grave economic crisis situation, yet some important facts about the economy are distorted in the CBSL Annual Report.

Not only that the Government, at the same time, conceals some crucial economy related facts from the people. A Government hiding information from the people cannot be accepted, Dissanayake stressed.

“Annual Report of the CBSL reflects the country’s economy. When we go through this report for 2020, it can be seen that the economy is dropping at an alarming rate and the future of this remains unclear. Yet, the Government continuously says that they have enough money to run the economy. This report clearly shows that such claims of the Government are not accurate.”
