UNP Parliamentarian Sajith Premadasa says that the Budget 2014 of the government is not a people-friendly one.

He made this statement during a function in the Beliatte area on Thursday.

UNP Parliamentarian, Sajith Premadasa said;

“According to government data a family of four will incur an expense of 40,000 rupees for food and other needs. How many people in our country earn 40,000 rupees a month ? why can’t the government distribute among the people, the money that was saved following the end of the war? The public fear they may not receive any relief from the budget.”

He added; “this government doesn’t help the needy, they help those who are well off. This government provides relief to those who don’t deserve it. What they are doing today is providing tax breaks to casinos.”

The parliamentarian made this statement during a function held to distribute savings account books for children in Beliatte.
