Country cannot move forward by implementing relief systems: Keheliya Rambukwella
[ Friday, 19 April 2013, 04:49.07 AM GMT +05:30 ]
The country cannot move forward by implementing relief systems in place of true development, Cabinet Spokesperson, Keheliya Rabukwella said yesterday.

Addressing a media briefing, he said the constant supply of relief to the people by the government has resulted in the present state of the country.

The government, while providing relief to the people, should 'not go overboard in this regard,' he added.

"They told us that they did not bother with providing everything free to the people of their country," he said.

He stressed this was the reality of the situation, and the country would collapse financially, if the current system of providing relief to all the people continued. "Every time a government has to make a decision regarding the provision of relief, it is hard. Relief should be given of course, but limitations should be adhered to," he said.

Citing the different aspects in Sri Lanka, which receive government relief, he said, "Relief is being provided in the education and health sectors, among many others. No one can say that relief isn't being provided."
