Basil breaks Ravi’s record on restoring Finance Ministry


Former Minister Ravi Karunanayake as the first Minister of Finance in the Good Governance regime, had devoted most of his time to the affairs in the Ministry on a daily basis. The former Minister was known for spending most of the day in the ministry until midnight, looking after the affairs of the Ministry.

Minister Basil Rajapaksa, however, has surpassed the record set by Karunanayake as the Minister of Finance by committing himself to the Ministerial affairs, reportedly till 3 am yesterday busying with officials.

Ruling Party MP Jagath Kumara once told a press conference that Basil received an empty treasury. As such, a miracle cannot be performed at once, the MP noted, adding that people would have to wait a while until a relief is provided.

Confirming Kumara’s sentiment, Finance Minister Rajapaksa is working day and night to build the country’s economy and is implementing the plans.
