Minister of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, Rajitha Senaratne says that there is a threat to the country internationally due to the political decisions taken in order to gain power.
[quote]In the recent past everyone in this area obtained the tourist guide certificate. Those were political decisions. This country has been destroyed because of political decisions. Even today the country is in such a state because of the ignorant decisions taken to win the elections and come into power. I will say this in public.[/quote]
The minister made this statement at a meeting held in the Moragalla area in Aluthgama.
The meeting was held to discuss the issues faced by tourist guides in the Beruwala area and how to proceed with the fishing industry in a more effective manner.
He further added:
“Now as a result of this, other nations have surpassed us and we are still trying to build our own nationality. We have also been called before the United Nations and it is us who are scapegoats and might be sanctioned. So please note, if you are in the tourism sector, you should protect that sector. It is then that we can protect our jobs.”
