Housing Minister Wimal Weerawansa yesterday hit out at Treasury Secretary Dr. P. B. Jayasundara calling him an ‘economic hit-man.’
At a function organised by his Ministry at the Youth Centre in Maharagama Minister Weerawansa called for the resignation of the Treasury Secretary.
He questioned whether President Mahinda Rajapaksa had liberated the country from the clutches of terrorists to allow an economic hit-man to destroy the economy.
“Imagine what would have happened if the Treasury Secretary was the Secretary to the Defense Ministry,” he said.
The Minister said, Dr. Jayasundara should follow Defense Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa who is considered the best public servant in Sri Lanka today. (Yohan Perera)
