He also said that even the International Monetary Fund has accepted that at least 04 years should be dedicated with long-term solutions.

He said that he postponed all the meetings held on July 9th and stayed at home, and then the police asked him to leave the house as there was a possibility of disturbance.

Due to this, the Prime Minister stated that he and his wife left home in the evening.

At that time, the Prime Minister further mentioned that he came to know that his house had been set on fire.

The Prime Minister said that this house was the only one he had in Sri Lanka as well as abroad, and that it has now been burnt down, and he had agreed with his wife, Professor Maithri Wickramasinghe, to donate all the valuable books collected over time to the Royal College as well as the oldest Portuguese works to the University of Peradeniya.
