[quote]Today the people are unable to pay their debts. Details in the debt list have now fallen into the crib. Now the people are trapped with debt. The small scale businessman and those who have credit cards are here. Now they cannot obtain any loans. When you look at it, they are in the crib because they are unable to pay the loans. How many of such persons are their in your areas. We will give them an opportunity. We will introduce a system to pay their loans on condition which will be relief-based.

[quote]The government has taken billion of loans at high interests to build islands. They are constructing one island away from the Hambantota Port. There is another being built away from the Colombo Harbour. These islands are created and then given to China on lease. This government can give islands to the Chinese. But this government cannot give deeds to the families in the Hambantota District where a number of families live under one roof.[/quote]
