The former minister stated that if they were to run the Ministry of Finance with the henchmen of Chandrika Kumaratunga, who created a negative economy that they would never be able to move forward but only move backwards.
Karunanayake also continued to say that when he was with Lakshman Yapa Abeywardena a particular individual of a company had tried to take certain things from them, and now that he [Lakshman Yapa Abeywardena] is seated on a bigger chair, that he provides everything he said he didn’t want to give.
“ETI depositors are demanding for money. What is the Central Bank doing? They point fingers at others but not at themselves. Jehan Amarathunga has taken Rs. 10,800 million from the People’s Bank. Can they ask how that money was obtained? I tell the Governor of the Central Bank that another minister has taken Rs 4000 million. Can they ask how this money was obtained? The United National Party is waiting to see what benefits they get. The prices of the small vehicles were changed. Is that the problem? The trade balance is affected by BMWs, Benz and Range Rovers”
