The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) charged today that the government had burdened the people by imposing excessive taxes and fines such as new traffic fines while reducing the fines imposed on fraudsters through the National Audit Bill.
JVP MP Sunil Hadunnetti told a news conference that the government had imposed new fines and had increased fines on traffic offences so as to increase government revenue.
“The traffic rules have been strengthened not to discipline the motorists but to increase government revenue. The government is trying to sustain at the cost of the people. It has reduced the fines imposed on fraudsters engaged in massive frauds and corruption through the national audit bill while taxing and fining common people,’ he said.
He said even though the government was taxing and fining the people excessively, it was providing more privileges and benefits to MPs and ministers.
“The government is planning to provide more benefits and vehicles to newly appointed monitoring MPs. The numbers of ministers are ever increasing,’ he charged. (Ajith Siriwardana)

We are fed up with your talks, nothing was changed only shouting, we have seen only negative actions, show us some positive results, then people will listen to you all. Learn the basics to do an attitude revolution in this country.

JVP you are like a sleeping watchdog. I expected you to be more active in putting pressure to the lazy government to speed up with the investigation and prosecution of the crimes of the previous regime. via DM Android App

I hoped Hon. MP is calling fraudsters means ministers and their sups. It real because civilians are soft targets for the Government. That is the reasons people are victims of taxes and fines. This is normal all over the world. JVP have to come for the practical politics rather than being watchdog. However Hon.MP did his level best work to brought Central bank bond malpractice and fraud.
