Fuel price hike a result of unsuccessful governance: JO

While claiming that the Yahapalana Government is a failure, the joint opposition today said the increase of fuel prices and other basic services were results of unsuccessful practices carried out by the government.

MP Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena told a news conference that the government was continuing against the will of the people and added that the country had now plunged into an anarchical state.

“As a result of this unsuccessful procedure, the prices of fuel and rates of electricity and water bills will be increased in near future by adding more burden on the people. Another result of this condition is the rising malnutrition ranking of Sri Lanka. The agriculture sector of the government is mostly devastated leaving innocent farmers helpless,” he said.

While referring to the advertisement thanking people for paying taxes, MP Abeywardena said the government was in an attempt to loot people’s money and they would continue it even in future.

Meanwhile, joint opposition member MP C. B. Rathnayake told the media that the supplementary estimate valued over Rs. 18 billion which was recently approved by the House was mostly for buying vehicles and added that the people had to pay taxes for them also. (Kalathma Jayawardhane)

    "Loot people´s money and have fun at Shangrila". Your message is loud and clear Mr. minister.

    Dam Friday, 11 May 2018 07:23 AM

    Hello Jayantha .... when were you born? This minister also was born yesterday like you

    Lankaboy Friday, 11 May 2018 10:41 AM

    Petrol priced was increased by more than15% during last 2months in most western countries... Isn't it natural to increase according to demand? why JO and politicians making big fuss

    Saman Thursday, 10 May 2018 10:52 PM

    So true. Also we don't want to bring people to the power who said we can live one month with 2500 rupees.

    Jay Thursday, 10 May 2018 10:54 PM

    Mr. minister. Have you forgotten how much the price of petrol was before this government came to power? Please don't think people are foolish to listen to losers.

    Dam Friday, 11 May 2018 07:24 AM

    Exactly ... whether it is good or bad just having media briefing to bluff the people ... like they were saints

    Warren Raed Thursday, 10 May 2018 10:59 PM

    Don't worry Sir. We as citizens know what to do in 2020.

    Yeti Friday, 11 May 2018 07:10 AM

    What to do but jump from frying pan into the fire, no?

    Sincere Thursday, 10 May 2018 11:22 PM

    This government did not increase fuel prices for 3 years. For 3 years during your regime how many times did you increase fuel prices? You seem to be suffering from a disease of forgetting things so easily!

    Buddhist Thursday, 10 May 2018 11:30 PM

    Idiots only make idiotic statements. When in the global market the price of crude and fuel have gone up how can Sri Lanka supply petrol for the same price?

    DONKEY Thursday, 10 May 2018 11:35 PM

    END OF THE DAY THE POLITICIANS ARE THE ONE BENEFITTING AND NOT THE PUBLIC. GOD BLESS MOTHER LANKA.

    Yeti Friday, 11 May 2018 07:16 AM

    In that case you morons were unsuccessful 100 times over!!!

    Jaliya Friday, 11 May 2018 07:37 AM

    Right .... its has been raining heavily for the past few months due to unsuccessful governance.

    Dhammika Friday, 11 May 2018 07:39 AM

    The JOkers are the main culprits who have created political CHAOS and calls the government unsuccessfull.

    silly ass Friday, 11 May 2018 10:00 AM

    What a donkey!

    Rasheed Friday, 11 May 2018 10:42 AM

    Anyway the present fuel price is still less than price when your Government was in power.

    nirmalath Friday, 11 May 2018 05:10 PM

    When the prices were increased during your time and the USD went up to Rs.132/- from Rs.45/- was it your inability to govern?Uneducated politicians crying for spilled milk.In Sri Lanka nothing has come down, but during your time we saw the massive margins in increases of prices.

    Mahen Friday, 11 May 2018 07:41 PM

    This is not just in Sr Lanka. Oil price is at a 4 year high. It is going up considerably in other countries as well.

    Don Friday, 11 May 2018 09:21 PM

    After betraying own coalition on JO-kers coup and losing heavily, still they never stop talking.

    FORGOTFULGUY Friday, 11 May 2018 10:11 PM

    HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN SO SOON THE. TENURE OF LAWLESS REGIMEMAARA DIDNT HEED. EVEN THECOURT ORDER TO REDUCE FUEL PRICE HIKE WHEN IT WAS CHALLENGED . via DM Android App
