All leaders responsible for country's debt - Cardinal

Colombo Archbishop Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith yesterday said that the politicians who have been in power since Independence are responsible for making the country debt-ridden and sowing the seeds of disunity by dividing communities.

He pointed out that all political parties in the country should work together to solve the problems in the country instead of fighting with each other. He was speaking at the service to mark the 73rd Independence Day at All Saint's Church in Borella.

“We cannot try to sell the common resources of the country to the world powers.We have gone to introduce economic systems that we cannot and have made this country a debtor to many countries in the world. All this has happened due to the wrong path taken by the leaders of our country,” he added.
