The joint opposition (JO) today accepted Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe’s challenge to former President Mahinda Rajapaksa to explain how he would reduce taxes by 20 per cent if he comes to power.

JO MP Bandula Gunawardana said they would accept the challenge on behalf of Mr. Rajapaksa.

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe continues to mislead the people by saying that Rajapaksa era loans had resulted in economic hardships. To cover up their inefficiency, the UNP-led government is resorting to their famous Goebbel’s Theory and blaming others,” he told a news briefing.

Rejecting reports that loans incurred during the Rajapaksa era had crippled the country’s economy, the MP said the Rajapaksa government was able to gradually increase the surplus income, even after loan repayments.

Meanwhile, the MP said the amount of state loans was Rs.2 trillion when the Rajapaksa government came to power and it increased to Rs.7 trillion within ten years. However, this government had obtained loans worth Rs.4 trillion within four years,” he said.

    Let JO keep their secrets Yahapalanaya may take the idea and distort it for their benefit. It is time this Idiotic Yahapalanaya
    stop their campaign of chasing after thieves and do some work for the welfare of the people. But for that they have hardly any time. Further more they have demonstrated that they are unable to do any thing constructve politically to maintain Sri Lanka let alone developing it. They should go……but how can we get rid of them before they do further damage to Sri Lanka.
