If the country's burning issues can be resolved through local government elections, Labour and Foreign Employment Minister Manusha Nanayakkara urged the responsible authorities to declare them publicly.
While addressing a media briefing at the Narahenpita ‘Mehewara Piyasa’ building, he said the people who did not have the backbone to take responsibility for the country at the time of need are using the country's issues for the sake of narrow political gain,” he said.
“The country is being stabilized, and the economy is being revived with great difficulty. If anyone thinks the burning issues of the country can be solved through the local government elections, they should come out and say so publicly,” he said.
“There was a very dangerous situation in the country during May, June and July last year. At the time, the country was on fire. We had serious issues, but we took a risk and faced the challenge without hesitation. While working with the President, we have ensured that fuel, gas, and medicine queues are a thing of the past. The economy has been strengthened with great difficulty. We have discharged the responsibility that had been entrusted to us. “Through the Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment (SLBFE) we contributed Rs. Three billion to the Treasury,” the Minister said.
