Feb 14, Colombo: Opposition Leader of Sri Lanka, Ranil Wickremasinghe says the government has given cost of living plus to the people instead of providing relief after the end of the war.
Addressing a gathering in Bandaragama, Wickremasinghe has said that the people had supported the government during the war by shouldering the burden of an increasing cost of living due to the war at the time.
He has noted that the government has failed to provide any relief to the people after the end of the war.
“The people have been given cost of living plus,” he has remarked.
According to Wickremasinghe, the government instead of increasing salaries has increased the fuel prices.
He has called on the people to unite with the United National Party (UNP) to topple the anti-people government.
