Leader of the Opposition Sajith Premadasa said he will raise health issues and the issues which are faced by people with regard to electricity bills, when Parliament meets next week.  


Speaking during the Opposition Leader Mobile Service programme in Wallimanagama in Kataragama , Mr. Premadasa said he will stress the need to implement health based programmes in the country in Parliament. “Sri Lanka’s economic development programme and social development programmes should be based on health issues because of the current pandemic situation. Therefore I will question the Government on these issues,” Mr. Premadasa said.  


“Some of the people, I have met during the Opposition Leader Mobile Service, have told me that they have been faced with a major issue in finding means to pay their electricity bills. One person told me that the electricity bill in his shop had come to Rs 69,000 while his domestic electricity bill had come to Rs 62,000 last month.Although, the Government pledged to grant a grace period and to give people the opportunity of paying the power bill in instalments, that pledge had not been kept. Therefore I will be raising a question with regard to this matter when Parliament meets in 2021,” he added.
