Government prioritising Development Drive amidst challenges – State Minister Nishantha

The Government prioritises the development drive amidst all the challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the Opposition, State Minister Sanath Nishantha said.

The State Minister was speaking to the media at the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) Headquarters in Nelum Mawatha, Battaramulla, yesterday.

State Minister Nishantha said that the Opposition is bringing numerous accusations against the Government because it has succeeded in achieving targets regardless of the pandemic in the country. “The Opposition’s policy is to support the pandemic and thereby defeat the Government. That is why a series of protests backed by the Opposition is taking place throughout the country,” he said.

State Minister Nishantha also said that a programme has been planned to increase the country’s exports within next year and earn more foreign exchange to the country.

Sri Lanka Podujan Peramuna (SLPP) Parliamentarian D. Weerasinghe said that the Government has presented a progressive budget for 2022 in this critical situation. “Therefore, the Opposition should not attempt to achieve narrow political agendas,” he said.

“This is a government, which fulfills its duties to the public regardless of any economic setback. We are a people-friendly Government,” he said.
