    Until the Yahapalana Government can pay back all the loans taken by Rajapakse which includes the US$3 billion (only the amount identified up to date) bribe taken by Rajapakse is paid back, any budget will be a burden to the people. Rather than making statements against the Government, Dinesh Gunewardena should ask Mahinda Rajapakse to bring back the money into Government coffers.
