Pot calling kettle black !
Of all people CBK making a lot of noise. Please bring back all your wealth from abroad back to Sri Lanka and then open your mouth. This is a joke, a new government does not mean, that the actors of the new government are newly born and innocent.
The Mahinda Rajapaksa Government should be commended for steering the economy for 9 years. First, it was the costly war which required significant capital with no tangible economic return.
The war ended in 2009; there was the country with wrecked infrastructure, zero economic growth, incapable of supporting its peoples.
The Mahinda Rajapaksa Government embarked on massive socio-economic upliftment projects. Industries got a boost; infrastructure upped to international levels.
Townships grew and economic activity thrived. The bourse surged; the country registered its best economic performance indicators since 1948. The debt to GDP ratio plunged.
The Yahapalanaya Government has halted all development. It Central Bank boss is alleged to have insider traded to profits in the order of LKR 43b. There being no economic activity, Government revenue is at its rock bottom.
Mahinda Rajapaksa is a visionary. He calls himself “a man born in the jungles …..” with a survival instinct as sharp as a razor.
I dislike people who complain. The Yahapalanaya inherited a hot and bubbly economy. And the Yahapalanaya chest-beaters have lost the plot.
Soon there will be taxes. The IMF/World bank will impose conditions for their support. And the amude-wearing citizenry will bear the brunt.
