UNP Deputy Leader Ruwan Wijewardena stated that the government is increasing the tax burden on the one hand and using repression to kill the people on the other.

The Deputy Leader said that the Minister of Finance is preparing to increase taxes by presenting a new budget and the UNP is against imposing taxes on the people due to the poor management of the government due to the current economic crisis in the country.

Wijewardena also said that all possible measures would be taken against the victims of bullets and threats.
