Yet another parliamentary session began on Thursday March 24, with thirteen questions being included in to the agenda, with the aim of obtaining oral answers. But the questions remained questions, as answers were not provided to any of the questions that were raised, as the respective MPs and Ministers were not present in parliament to raise questions and to provide answers.

However, the government’s economic policy was taken into debate in parliament later on as UPFA MP Gamini Lokuge questioned the rise of the dollar rate from Rs. 130 to Rs. 144 and also accused the government of getting trapped in the current economic issue because of loans taken on high interest rates.

In reply, the Minister of Parliamentary Reform and Mass Media Gayantha Karunathilaka accused the previous government of making the Ceylon Electricity Board, the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation , SriLankan Airlines, Sri Lanka Ports Authority and other institutions go in to debt.
