The United National Party (UNP) today said the revision of electricity prices was a premeditated move which was implemented following instructions by the IMF and the World Bank.

UNP MP Ravi Karunanayake who is currently in Washington said he would take it up with the relevant donor agencies.

He also said the government had gone back on its promise that it would not shift from providing electricity to people at a subsidised rate. This is similar to a situation where you promise someone a gift and later ask that person to pay for the gift,” he said.

“We in the UNP had already warned that this revision was going to come and our prediction came true,” he said.

He said this would suffocate the Sri Lankan population which was already being choked by the high cost of living. (Yohan Perera)
