A secret survey carried out in Uva Province by the government, while various equipments and food stuffs are distributed among people illegally, reveals that a severe opposition has developed against Rajapaksa regime.
The government that has realized through this survey that it would definitely encounter a defeat at the Uva PC election is planning to win the election by hook or by crook reveal internal sources of the government.
In addition to distributing equipment and food stuff illegally the government is planning to bring down prices of several essential commodities just before the election. The plan is to win people’s favour to win the election.
The prices of milk powder, sugar, gas, fuel, wheat flour are to be brought down as an election gimmick. The government, despite the prices of milk powder had gone down in the world market did not give the advantage of this decrease in prices to the masses. Massive agitations were held by people demanding the government to bring down the prices of essential commodities which the government chose to ignore.
The price of crude oil in the market has come down to US$95 a barrel but the masses were never given the advantage of this decrease in price of fuel due to fraud, corruption and wasteful spending by the government.
The government that burdened the people with heavy taxes is attempting to suppress people’s opposition temporarily by carrying out an artificial decrease in prices point out political analysts.
