Will boost economy in 100 days if given responsibility: Ravi

UNP Assistant Leader and former Minister Ravi Karunanayake said today he could build up the economy in 100 days if he was given the responsibility.

Addressing a meeting held at UNP office in Thotalanga, MP Karunanayake said state officials who go behind politicians do not change with the change of government.

“It is they who mess up the country's economy. The action of a few people attached to the government had put the economy in a mess,” he said.

Meanwhile, he said it is a common fact that the tusker with sacred relics usually walks in front of a perahera.

“However, those who walk in front of the government are political henchmen and stilt walkers. It is they who sabotage the efforts of the President and the Prime Minister to build the economy. Both leaders are aware of this situation,” he said.

Referring to the new tax on gold imports, he said the tax was not necessary. (Yohan Perera)

    Leaving your crooked side apart, Your first budget did things we cannot afford as a country (Reduce fuel cost, car prices, increase Govt salaries by 10,000. BUT you did zero to the poor and the farmers (all MR voters) and pushed them further. You ruin this country and god know what RW was thinking

    This Government is very weak, allowing the thieves to makestatements about key factors which affect the whole Lankans. He was the Finance minister when the Gov Treasury was robbed by Mahendran and the group. As he was unknown about this huge theft, he did not have any knowledge about what was happening inside or weak knowledge about finance including his immediate Boss. He is stupid enough to make this type of foolish statements, may be interested in bringing a thrill to the fools, how could he bring the fallen Lankan economy up in 100 days. We can believe him at least he was capable of catching the robbery while it was happening or after that. Even when the opposition informed about the theft, it was unknown to him/them. You see this type of no. 1 incapable ministers handling the Lankan economy. Even from his current statement, can understand he does not know any thing about Lankan economy or he wants to fool the country to make a cover up for the other thefts he forgot to do.

    Ravi ruined the economy of the country when he became the finance minister. After the blunders and corruptions he he was compelled to resign from that position. Now he claims he can fix the economy. What a joke, really speaking he should be in JAIL. He maybe a accountant but he is not a economist. You need a good economist to that position.

You taxed the poor man in his drink, fags and bring down the price of all unwanted items and you think you were a smart Finance Minister. You should be ashamed of your self. Still trying to hang on and drink the blood of the public.
