Chandrasena Maliyadde = “Beating the Fuel and Energy Crisis”
The shortage of fuel and energy has brought the whole of Sri Lanka to a standstill and its citizenry of all walks to mile-long queues. It disrupts social movements, economic activities, business and production of all scales in all the sectors. Addressing the Parliament, on 7th June, Prime Minister (PM) has stated that we have to find $3,300 million for fuel and $250 million for gas over the next six months and that “We need to find new ways as an alternative to the traditional ways if we are to elevate the country from this position”.
The Whole of his speech spells out new ways of begging and borrowing to continue the current extravagant consumption pattern of fuel and energy.
