The Pivithuru Hela Urumaya (PHU) has urged the government to follow the example set by the Modi government in India to destroy the black market. PHU leader Udaya Gammanpila urged the Sri Lankan government to demonetise Rs 5,000 currency note.
Speaking to media, PHU MP Udaya Gammanpila said, “Demonetisation would reveal the identities of those who have black money in the country. We can see if it is with Rajapaksa or the central bank thieves.”
Udaya Gammanpila lashed out at the Maithripala Sirisena for not making enough efforts to unearth black money stashed abroad and in the country.
He said, “The government had appointed a committee to find stolen state assets. But, despite spending large amounts of public funds travelling the world, the government has not been able to find even a rupee of the funds that were stolen.”
