At an event held in Palugasgodella, Hambantota on Sunday morning, UNP Parliamentarian, Sajith Premadasa discussed the country’s per capita increase.

“The current government is on a nonsensical diatribe, saying that our per capita income is increasing. If the per capita income is increasing in dollar figures as they say, then why on earth are parents abandoning their children on the streets and sending their children to orphanages? The reason for this is that the government is toying with numbers and is presenting false data and statistics and is attempting to paint a beautiful picture for the entire country,” he said.

This event under the auspices of Premadasa was held to present childrens’ savings accounts to children from the Pakugasgodella area in Hambantota.
