‘PEOPLE WANT GOTABAYA TO GO’
The MP stated that the state of affairs in Sri Lanka was advanced and that everybody has the duty to rescue it from additional calamity.
“That is why our political party (Samagi Jana Balawegaya), has accepted to be part of a national government on the condition that the President is able to give a timeframe to abolish his official executive powers and step down.”
Harsha de Silva acknowledged that this was the demand of the Sri Lankan individuals of the nation and that they wished Gotabaya Rajapaksa to go.
“We are not asking him to leave tomorrow. If the president works towards that, we will work towards an all-party government. If the president doesn’t do that, we will continue to be in opposition and will only help in ensuring the country comes out of the economic crisis.”
‘PM HAS TO CONVINCE PREZ TO RESIGN’
We is not going to scuttle PM Wickramasinghe, but when they need us to be within the authorities and within the cupboard, then he has to persuade the President to resign, which is the essential demand of the nation, stated the MP.
“I hold Gotabaya Rajapaksa, Mahinda Rajapaksa and the extended family responsible for taking the country to an abyss and creating misery for the people. I am not saying there was no problem before they came to power. But we need to remember that from 1994 they have been holding the executive office. The same political camp has been holding on to power,” said the MP.
“Other political parties have also been part of bad decisions. But the trigger for the collapse was the totally unimaginable tax cut that emptied the coffers and then printed money to fill the void. Another was the overnight ban on the importation of chemical fertilizers,” added Harsha de Silva.
On Ranil Wickramasinghe proving his majority, Harsh de Silva said that the opposition party with the second highest mandate should have been given the chance to lead the government. But the SJB will continue to support the way to come out of the economic crisis, he said.
‘CAN’T CHANGE THE PAST’
On China’s role in Sri Lanka’s crisis the MP said, “This is a basic Indian query. What is completed is completed. We cannot undo the initiatives now. What we are able to do now could be to determine a solution to come out of the debt. We must restructure it and now we have to speak to the Chinese and are available to an answer. Some center floor the place we are able to handle our debt reimbursement sustainably. We cannot change the previous.”
Addressing the current uprising and protests amid the economic scenario, the MP said that the violence, which was instigated by the Rajapaksa supporters and the way the public retaliated is not how the country likes to see its people.
