The JVP , at a conference themed Tax Burden, Debt and the broken economy alleged that the country is experiencing a serious downfall in its economy.
JVP Politburo Member, Samantha Vidyaratne stated that people living close to mountainous regions are constantly afraid of the mountain giving way. And those who reside close to a river are under the constant fear of the river overflowing and flooding their homes when it rains, while people living close to camps are afraid of them exploding at any given time.
“Now the entire country is wondering as to when and how the economy will explode. We do not know”, he said
He further pointed out that if the country does not receive a massive loan from the world very soon, the economy will explode to a point where the where the salaries and wages cannot be paid. And at the rate they are taxing the people, they will impose a tax even on breast milk and even the pet dog at home, he said.
