An agitation demanding the government to abolish executive presidency was held at Baddegama in Galle district.
The agitation had been organized by the JVP Electoral Organization at Baddegama.
The budget proposals presented by the government are contradictory, confusing and a destructive budget says the Leader of the JVP Anura Dissanayaka.
Mr Dissanayaka charged that the budget proposals intensify the rural debt confronted by the village folk as a large amount of more borrowings have been introduced by the proposals.
He pointed out that on one hand the proposals state minor and medium entrepreneurs would be benefited but on the other massive tax relief has been given to all imported goods and added this has made the budget a contradictory, confusing and a destructive exercise.
Mr Dissanayaka said the liberalization policy that began in 1977 broke down the production in the country, trapped the country in a colossal debt snare and created a massive crisis in the import-export market. Mangala Samaraweera’s budget-2010 is an extension of that liberalization path he pointed out.
