‘People’s trust in government paved way for progressive budget’

The people of this country have placed immense faith in the government and voted in the highest number of members to Parliament, and under the leadership of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa, a progressive budget that would take the country forward has been presented, SLPP MP Ajith Rajapaksa said.

Speaking in Parliament during the debate on the second reading of the budget, he said he is confident that the Prime Minister has gained the confidence of the people during his political leadership, and that the public is confident that he will steer the country in the right direction.

He noted that despite the Opposition’s attempts to point out weaknesses in the budget and criticise it, the country has witnessed how the President and Prime Minister has accomplished what was deemed impossible in the past.
