Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe should step down from his Finance Minister portfolio, Minister Dhammika Perera says.

The parliamentarian told a media briefing today that “Sri Lanka’s finance minister plans for disaster.”

The finance minister has no plans to resolve the current dollar crisis in the country, he continued, explaining that all of Sri Lanka’s economic challenges are linked to the dollar crisis.

Speaking further, Minister Perera said the finance minister has no future cash flow planning for the country either.

The finance minister also delays all matters related to dollar earnings, borrowing, bridging finance, available credit lines and credit lines for essential goods, he added.

“For these reasons, the minister of finance should resign.”

The lawmaker went on to clarify that he does not have a problem with Wickremesinghe holding the portfolio of Prime Minister.
