Participating in an International Monetary Fund (IMF) programme is similar to one falling ill and being admitted to hospital, that though the Sri Lankan economy has not become a seriously ill patient who should be admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU), but has clearly become a patient who had to be admitted to hospital, said Central Bank Governor Indrajit Coomaraswamy recently while reviewing ‘The Road Map: Monetary and Financial Sector Policies for 2017 and Beyond’.

While speaking further, the Central Bank Governor said, While we are aware of the treatment to be provided for this, it is a pleasure that it has already been started. Even the IMF has by now appreciated the progress by Sri Lanka. Since the improved efficiency of the state monetary sector is the important unit in this progress, the work done by the finance Minister and his staff should be appreciated. However, the challenges before us are the proper implementation of this with a clear understanding, goal and commitment of the road map before us. This has to be done through a national effort.”

However, while responding to the Central Bank Governor’s statement during a media conference on 05 January, Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake said that when Mahinda Rajapaksa had handed over the government the economy was already in the ICU and that when the economy was being pushed into the ICU during the Mahinda Rajapaksa era, the incumbent Central bank Governor had been an attendant in that hospital. While pointing out that he (Indrajit Coomaraswamy) was also with the Rajapaksas at that time, the Finance Minister added that however, what had been in the ICU would soon be brought not to the hospital but to the OPD.

    Ravi Karunanayake,

    Where were you hiding while the GREAT CENTRAL BANK ROBBERY was going on? In Angoda hospital?

    That was within the purview of your Ministry, but you did NOTHING to prevent it, singing hosannas to the Yamapalanaya instead!

    You are embedded upto your NECK in the mud of corruption practiced by this Yamapalanaya!

    All FOXES in charge of the CHICKEN COOP!

    These UNP crooks already had experience in stealing state finances,when they came into power after the regime change on the 8 January,2015. It was these crooks who took over the financial mangement of the country. Ravi who was already having a court case for money laundering was made the Finance Minister by Ranil -who was already planning the biggest Bank robbery. Ranil brought Ravi Karunananayake’s friend Arjun Mahendran(a friend of Rajaratnam the American Milionnaire who financed the terrorism in Sri Lanka) from Singapore and made him the Governor of the Central Bank. After the robbery when the President woke up and refused to renew Arjuna Mahendran’s contract and appointed the new Governor Coomarswamy, Ranil the Prime Minister could not possibly send away Arjun Mahendran who was his partner in the “crime” empty handed as he would be a useful elemnt for his future, and appointed him as his adviser for the plan to find employment for 20 000(?) youths.

    The worst thing is that these are the crooks who are still call the President Mahinda Rajapakse thief, when he was the only President who served the country and the people well removed terrorism, developped the country as it was never before, and kept the communities united .
