The United National Party today charged that financial authority over the country’s affairs which should rest completely with the parliament has been bestowed upon Treasury Secretary P.B. Jayasundra.

That is the reason why Minister Wimal Weerawansa is claiming that an “economic hit man” is destroying the country’s economy, UNP MP Wijedasa Rajapaksa said.

He, however, stated that a ministry secretary can never be an economic hit man and that the hit man should be the minister who is keeping him in that post.

“How can a Secretary become an economic hit man without the blessings of a minister?” he inquired.

Rajapaksa stated that the leaders of the state should take responsibility under this situation and they cannot save themselves by blaming it on the “small fry” like P.B. Jayasundara, the Permanent Secretary of the Treasury and the Ministry of Finance.
