    Minister Karunanayake paid tribute to the President, The Prime Minister, the Cabinet, MPs and the general public who stood by him since Budget 2017 was presented to parliament. He also requested all factions of the society irrespective of party politics to rally round this government and help to build a new country with a new vision.

    Finance Minister Karunanayake further said that certain trivial political groups created various objections to the new economic and social vision introduced to the country by Budget 2017. However, this government of good governance successfully faced the challenges posed by such petty groups and was able to defeat their agendas.
