“I urge the people of this country to get on to the road and go against this unethical and horrible act that the government has done. The government always thinks that they can get away with anything. They believe the people have to accept all decisions they make and it is exactly that mentality that prompted them to not even worry too much about the increase. What justification has been given for such a drastic increase?” he asked. (Hafeel Farisz)

Please find below the full audio interview where Jayasekara points out the reasoning behind his statement.

    Dear Mr. Jayasekara
    Before telling us to come to the street you'll must come to the street. Then people will follow you. Without doing that you'll are waiting till us to take you to the top. What is your alternative plan for fuel price hike?
