No relief to COVID-19 affected people from the Budget: SJB
2 years ago
The Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) said today in Parliament that the Budget 2021 has failed to provide any relief to the people who were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. SJB MP Dr. Harsha De Silva said if the government has enough funds to carpet roads, it cannot say that it doesn’t have fund to provide relief to the people. “The budget makes no proposal in terms of social welfare and the government has no faith in the ability of our people,” he said. Meanwhile, he said the country would face grave difficulties if it didn’t go for an immediate foreign debt restructuring.
