UNP is the only party that can revive the economy: Ranil

United National Party (UNP) is the only party that can revive the economy, according to former Prime Minister and UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe.

Wickremesinghe made these comments during a public meeting at Hambantota yesterday.

“The government is in a dilemma whether to impose curfew and see the economy collapse again or to refrain from imposing the curfew and see the spread of the virus. The solutions remain with the UNP. We will be able to turn this country around. ”

“We want the public to remember what the UNP did to improve the economy when it was in power. A perfect example was the Hambantota Port. The Port was built by the Rajapaksas with the massive debt amount left for the successive government’s to pay.

Wickremesinghe said that the UNP was strategically able to provide a future for the Port by leasing it out to China Merchants Port Holdings Company.
