More taxes will increase burden on people: JVP

Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) Leader, MP Anura Kumara Dissanayake said the government had now decided to put taxes on goods and services that were exempted in the past and the new taxes such as  the carbon tax will increase the burden on the people.

The 2017 budget proposals this year indicate that the budget is merely a worthless piece of paper and not a document which outlines the economic plans of the State, he said.

    JVP will never be able to come to power in this country as long as they have this mentality to oppose any thing and every thing proposed by the government. People respect them as they are not corrupt and talk always against corruption but when they come to issues such as universities, private medical college, privatizing of ailing government institutions their views are far different to the views held by majority of this country. They have to change their out look and to be more pragmatic on issues face by the country. People of this country know very well that you all are a far better honest lot compared to the corrupt politicians of both the major parties of this country.
