Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe expressed views on the actions of the opposition.

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe stated that the prices of coconuts have reduced, and if they are smashing coconuts they can smash around a million coconuts across the country by purchasing them from all over.  And then will come a shortage of coconuts in the country and the prices of coconuts will increase and that will mainly benefits those in the Northwestern Province, observed the prime minister.

“Do not smash 10 or 15 coconuts and do not steal the coconuts from government plantations,” said the premier. He added that coconuts can be smashed against the UNP, it does not matter  and stated “make sure you purchase the one million coconuts.”

“Do not steal coconuts from the government for this purpose. Is stealing coconuts a big thing, for those who committed thievery from the god’s nation?” the PM charged. He added that the youth in the country may support the UNP, JVP or the TNA or may not support anyone but they need to be given employment and “we need to create one million jobs,” said the premier.
